Company Profile (Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research)

Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research logo
The Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) ranks among the top research centers in the field of polymer science world-wide. The institute was founded in 1983 on the campus of the Johannes Gutenberg University and commenced work in June 1984.
The focus on so-called soft materials and macro-molecular materials has resulted in the worldwide unique position of the MPI-P and its research focus. The MPI-P offers ideal conditions for conducting outstanding research. The institute combines all the necessary specialized expertise - from the creative design of new materials, from their synthesis in the lab to their physical characterization as well as the theoretical understanding of polymer characteristics.
