EPF Prize 2022

 

The Board of the European Polymer Federation is pleased to announce that the EPF Prize for 2022 has been awarded to Christopher Barner-Kowollik, “for pioneering work in the field of macromolecular photochemistry enabling unprecedented access to polymer design, spatially resolved interface functionalization and advanced photoresists technology”.

The Prize will be presented during a Special session at the EPF Congress.

 

Prof. Dr. Christopher Barner-Kowollik, FRSC, FRACI

 

A graduate in chemistry from Göttingen University (PhD Advisor M. Buback), Germany, Christopher Barner-Kowollik joined the University of New South Wales, Sydney, in early 2000 (Post-Doctoral Advisor T. Davis) rising to lead the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design in 2006 as one of its directors and professorial chair. He returned to Germany to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 2008, where he established and led a German Research Council funded Centre of Excellence in soft matter synthesis and served as the Head of School of the School of Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry at the KIT. Following a period as an adjunct professor and collaborator with QUT, he moved to Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in early 2017 and established QUT’s Soft Matter Materials Laboratory, one of the world’s premier macromolecular laboratories. He authored over 700 peer-reviewed publications in leading journals (cited over 39 000 times) and was thus far plenary and invited speaker at 230 conferences and research institutions, having been awarded multiple national and international awards.

As a consequence of the worldwide pandemic situation, the Board of the European Polymer Federation decided to postpone the Congress of the European Polymer Federation (EPF) by one year. The next scheduled Congress will thus be held in Prague in the year 2022 instead of 2021. On behalf of the European Polymer Federation, of the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Czech Chemical Society, we cordially invite you to visit Prague to attend this important meeting. It is planned to be held from the 26th June to 1st July 2022 at the Prague Congress Centre. www.epf2022.org

The SILESIAN MEETINGS ON POLYMER MATERIALS POLYMAT2022 conference, dedicated to the memory of prof. Andrzej Dworak, will be held on 17th of March 2022 in Zabrze, Poland.

Prof. Dworak was an undisputed authority in the field of chemistry of polymers and polymer materials. Distinguished international scientists, friends of Professor Andrzej Dworak, kindly agreed to deliver plenary lectures: Prof. Brigitte Voit (Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research, Dresden, Germany), Prof. Rainer Haag (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany), Prof. Stergios Pispas (National Hellenic Research Foundation, Athens, Greece), Prof. Axel Müller (Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany) and Prof. Petar Petrov (Institute of Polymers, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria).

The conference is organized under the auspices of the European Polymer Federation (EPF), in cooperation with the Committee of Chemistry of Polish Academy of Sciences, the Polish Chemical Society and with the journals Polymers and Przemysł Chemiczny.

The aim of the conference is to exchange current knowledge and create opportunities to exchange experiences in the field of polymer chemistry, closely related to the synthesis, characterization, modification and application of polymers. The conference will be an excellent opportunity to integrate the scientific community of universities and institutes, students, experts and engineers active in the field of precisely constructed polymers for new applications.

The details of the conference can be found on the webpage https://polymat2022.cmpw-pan.pl/

The purpose of the school is to exhaustively cover the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives of Macromolecular Science for Advanced Materials for applications in smart and sustainable products. These intriguing organic based systems, able to fulfil the growing demands of multifunctional materials, are realized /via/ a fine macromolecular design, by using innovative processing methods and technologies to boost specific features keeping in sight the main social challenges to be faced. In light of this, the topics covered by this school will concern all the different scientific aspects related to the formulation of polymer-based and hybrid systems, tailored to environmental sustainability (water and air remediation), energy (production and storage) and healthcare (sensors, body protection, rehabilitation and biomedical applications). The industrial point of view will be also take into account. (http://www.ipcb.ct.cnr.it/erice2022/index.html)
