About us

The interdisciplinary nature of polymer engineering requires a multitude of skills and wide-range expertise as are to be found at our institute: chemists, materials scientists and engineers all work together to develop innovations that can be launched on the market, thereby making a contribution to the competitiveness of the industry.

In addition to applied research with industry partners, we exchange ideas with national and international research institutes. We teach at bachelor's and master's levels and offer continuing education classes at the FHNW School of Engineering. Thanks to a close collaborative relationship with the Institute of Polymer Nanotechnology, it is possible to deal with new requirements in an even broader context.
