Future of Polymer Science Seminar Series

This will provide an opportunity for early career researchers, including both PhD students and post-docs to present their research and highlight their contribution to the wider Polymer Science community. This will provide an opportunity similar to the Australasian Polymer Symposium, which has been postponed due to COVID-19.
