This is the annual leading, polymer science and composite materials conference. The conference will be held in the Lisbon historical and financial capital Portugal during February 26-28, 2020. While choosing our venue we kept availability of best possible facilities and ease of access in mind. We hope our attendees will appreciate our selection of venue and date. polymer connect offers a wonderful opportunity for all the Scientists, Academicians, Lab Experts, Industry people and Young Researchers to meet at one place to share and gain knowledge through oral and poster presentations in the field of Biopolymers, Bio plastics, Polymer engineering, Biomaterials, Biotechnology and Bio Nano materials. Apart from acquiring scientific knowledge, the conference also provides interaction space where one interacts with everyone and can make new international collaborations. All the delegates and industry clients will have an opportunity to meet and make new contacts with people and associations which will enhance their product standard. A number of researchers at CDRSP and IPLEIRIA  (CDRSP: Professor Paula Pascoal Faria, Professor Artur Mateus, ESTG: Professor Pedro Martinho and MARE_IPLEIRIA: Professor Maria Gil)  are involved in the Organising Committee for this exciting conference.
