EUropean POlymer Conference on “Dynamic Polymer Networks” (EUPOC 2022)

Today’s plastics are either thermoplastics composed of polymer chains, recyclable and processable at high throughput yet with poor heat and solvent resistance, or cross-linked thermosets made of permanent polymer networks with far better thermomechanical properties and solvent resistance yet essentially intractable and non-recyclable once processed. Dynamic polymer networks (DPNs) benefit from dynamic exchangeable or reversible cross-links to ideally combine the best features of thermoplastics during processing and thermosets during service. DPNs bear the promise of the next generation of polymer materials and composites in cutting edge applications, in line with sustainable development and requisites of the new plastics circular economy. EUPOC 2023 will offer a platform to discuss the main challenges facing this important research field, bringing together worldwide scientists, engineers and students working on every aspect of dynamic polymer networks.

The conference will be based on plenary lectures, oral communications, and poster presentations. Major addressed topics will be:

  • Synthesis and processing of DPNs
  • DPNs from renewable resources
  • Recycling of DPNs
  • Characterization of DPNs
  • Supramolecular DPNs
  • Modelling of DPN properties
  • DPNs with programmed functions
  • Cutting-edge applications of DPNs


The Conference will take place from Sunday May 14th 2023 up to Thursday May 18th 2023.

Registration will begin on Sunday May 14 from 5 p.m. Following the registration a Welcome party will be held at 7:30 pm.

The scientific program will begin on Monday morning May 15.

The Conference will end on Thursday May 18th around lunch time.
