New Materials - New Perspectives

The 32nd Leoben Conference on Polymer Engineering and Science will take place this year on November 21st and 22nd, 2024 on the topic "New Materials - New Perspectives". The planning and organization will be carried out jointly by the Department of Polymer Engineering and Science Leoben and the Polymer Competence Center Leoben.


The program will cover a wide range of interesting topics and is aimed equally at participants from industry and academia. In four lecture sessions, topics will be dealt with that are trend-setting for many areas of polymer technology:

  • Polymers for Sustainability and Circularity
  • Materials for Additive Manufacturing
  • Polymers for Energy Transformation, Storage and Transportation
  • Future trends in polymer technology

An additional highlight planned for the plenary session with invited presentations is a panel discussion on the topic of "Polymers in a world without oil", for which participants from business and politics will be invited.

This is also the fourth time that the Department of Polymer Engineering and Science Leoben, together with the Polymer Competence Center Leoben, is presenting the POLYMER SCIENCE SCHOOL AWARD. The presentation of successful spin-off companies, a poster session and the dinner on the evening of the first day round off the program of the 32nd Leoben Conference on Polymer Engineering and Science.
