The Plastics Training and Technology Center (KATZ) Aarau is the polymer engineering platform in Switzerland and has been actively supported by the FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland since its establishment; it is headed by our institute colleague Professor Dr. Jürg de Pietro. The centre passes on the latest, practice-oriented technical knowledge to employees and students in the field of education and continuing education; it also helps and advises companies and universities with regard to innovative projects and technology as well as applied research and development.
