Summer School on "Transient and complex polymer networks"

22-27 July, 2019 – Anacapri (Capri, Italy)


We organized a Summer School on Transient and complex polymer networks in Capri, Italy from the 22nd to the 27th of July 2019.

The school aimed to explore all aspects of polymer networks containing supramolecular junctions or several dynamics of association.

The school was addressed to students and researchers both from industry and academic institutions, and was open to all with an interest in this field.

Participants also had the opportunity to present their own work during poster sessions.


The summer school was organized by Prof. Giovanni Ianniruberto, (Dipartimento di Ingegneria chimica, dei Materiali e della Produzione industrial, Università Degli Studi di Napoli Federico II) and Prof. Evelyne van Ruymbeke (Bio- and Soft-Matter, Université catholique de Louvain). This project is funded by the European Union as an Innovative Training Networks under the H2020 Marie Curie Actions programme.
