FRENCH POLYMER GROUP

 

The French Polymer Group (GFP) is a non-profit association founded in 1970 concerned with advancing polymer as a science

OBJECTIVE

  • Bring together the various actors on polymers in France & coordinate actions to foster and promote polymer science

NETWORK

  • Nationwide members from the various fields of polymer science
  • Members from academia, higher French education and research organizations as well as industry
  • Partnerships with learned societies: SCF, SFP, FFM, AFICEP, SFIP, EPF, IUPAC, ACS, etc.
  • Annual national colloquium, young researchers meeting, regional meetings, workshops
  • Partnership with international polymer events & conferences
  • Awards for PhD students, Junior & Senior polymer scientists, honorary member
  • Joint GFP/SCF and GFP/SFP recognitions
  • Newsletter relaying latest advances and innovations, job openings (internships, Ph.D., postdoc, industrial positions), events, etc. in the field of polymers

ORGANIZATION

  • A national structure with a board of directors & an executive board composed of industrials, teachers and researchers
  • Regional GFP sections throughout the nation
  • Education committee providing summer/winter schools, educational supports, training tools

MONITORING AND ANTICIPATING THE FUTURE OF POLYMERS

  • Foresee, identify and monitor innovations and recent developments
  • Access to technological platforms for the characterization and development of new polymers and database on their technical and human resources
  • Preparation and organization of prospective workshops on state of the art topics

TOWARDS A STATE OF THE ART POLYMER SCIENCE & INNOVATION
