COST 1302 in detail

The European Network on Smart Inorganic Polymers synergises the European activities in relevant areas in order to establish widely applicable rules for the rational design of smart inorganic polymers. The combination of leading scientists with common motivation but diverse expertise in concert with industrial partners will act as a nucleus for translational efforts towards the design and application of novel inorganic polymers. SIPs intensifies the European exchange of knowledge and technologies and provides a forum for recent developments and innovative aspects.
For further information please download the Memorandum of Understanding MoU and see the COST guidelines.
