With the first
School on “Elastomers” in 2001, the European Polymer Federation
(EPF) has undertaken a new task in the educational area, aiming
at the creation of a European standard in Polymer Science and
Technology teaching. The EPF Schools supply an updated tutorial
approach to the most recent and fast developing areas on which
rationalized and comprehensive overviews are not yet available.
By launching this initiative, EPF fulfils once more its mission
to make national achievements available Europewide. The 2017
School addresses basic aspects and recent advances the different
aspects of energy and mass transport in polymers.
