Bordeaux Polymer Conference - May 28-31, 2018 - Bordeaux
The Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques (LCPO) is delighted to announce the first edition of Bordeaux Polymer Conference (BPC 2018) to be held from May 28-31, 2018 in Bordeaux (Talence Campus), FRANCE.
The goal of BPC 2018 is to gather the best scientists involved in the field of Polymer Science to discuss topics as wide as :
- Polymerization mechanism and catalysis
- Macromolecular engineering
- Green polymers
- Polymer self-assembly
- Interactions of polymers in life sciences and electronic
Because polymers are extremely controversial materials in the eyes of the general public, the Bordeaux Polymer Conference (BPC), one of the major polymer conference of the year, is the perfect occasion to question our role as scientists as well as eco-citizens . Building upon this reflection, a panel discussion is organized on the very last day of BPC to reflect on scientific innovation in our society:
Is scientific innovation still the answer to our global issues?
In addition to the purely scientific sessions of the conference, this opened debate will be the perfect occasion to discuss the impact of science and innovation with economic, environmental, and societal considerations as a more comprehensive backdrop . The panel discussion will be opened to the public of BPC and to any person interested in the debate. It will bring together a wide and broad audience with participants coming from academia and industry but also from start-ups, NGOs and foundations as well as from the political and the journalistic spheres. Ingenious and creative ideas will certainly come out of this multiculturalism.
