Dear Colleagues and Guests,

On the behalf of the IPCB’s Council, It is my great pleasure to organise and invite you to the first workshop of the Institute aiming to share and discuss the ongoing research activities as well as the transfer technology and outreaching ones. This initiative aims to identify the last achievements in terms of new research topics, to define a platform for new strategies, for finalizing proposals in agreement with regional, national and European programs Horizon Europe, as well as with international programs (USA, CHINA, etc.), able to satisfy the needs of modern society and the specific dynamic evolution. The Institute of Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials with more 120 staff, located in four locations (Pozzuoli, Napoli/Portici, Catania and Lecco), is the biggest Italian institute performing research on polymer-based materials and related advanced technologies. The research activities are organized in three main research platforms: Advanced Materials, Sustainability, Health and Nanomedicine. These activities, developed with a sustainability-based approach, are mainly focused on the synthesis and realization of innovative materials, the development of personalised solutions in nanomedicine and health, the application of chemistry and materials science for the environment and energy, transport, packaging and cultural heritage.

The workshop program includes almost 80 oral and poster presentations plus three main lectures covering the research themes included in the following scientific sessions:

Polymers, composites and nanostructures (bio- and synthetic) with multifunctional and sensing properties;

Multiphase polymer-based materials, nanomaterials, and nanostructures (synthetic and natural) for tissue engineering and regenerative/therapeutic medicine.

Biointerfaces, drug delivery systems, glycoproteomics;

Advanced and sustainable processing technologies of polymers, composites, and nanostructures. Additive technologies;

Synthesis, functionalization and modelling of polymers based materials. Structural characterization of macromolecule and advanced analysis techniques;

Knowledge and technology transfer. Outreaching.

The workshop program is a clear demonstration of the enormous advances of polymers based materials and nanosystems science within the three research platforms reported above. Despite the limitation of the actual sanitary situation due to COVID19, development of new ideas has been presented by implementing the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach as well as inter-sectorial one.  This at once presents the young scientists with many challenges, but also with the opportunity to acquire and apply new concepts on scientific knowledge of the highest level as their career progress. 

Finally, I would like to invite you to read this abstract book which contains accounts of high-quality research and transfer knowledge work performed by the scientists of the Institute.
