13th International Workshop on Polymer Reaction Engineering

This triennial International Workshop is a renown platform for experts to exchange their latest discoveries as well as a knowledge pool for young professionals who seek to gain a broad foundation or to present their own work. The focus of the event will be on the design and intensification of polymer manufacturing processes, driven both by customer demands and new technological developments such as new catalysts, process analytical technology and novel modelling and simulation tools.

Polymer reaction engineering (PRE) is a highly dynamic scientific field with vivid interfaces to various disciplines within academia, industry and economics. The workshop wants to trigger the development of polymer reaction engineering concepts to address the demands and expectations of economy and society with respect to improving the efficiency of energy, materials and investment for polymer manufacturing. Existing polymerisation processes have to be improved constantly and new processes have to be designed to fulfil customer demands. The almost universal variety of applications from coatings over functional materials for construction, for wearables or electronic devices to additive manufacturing requires continuous progress in product and process design. This means the design of new catalysts and the study of their kinetic and thermodynamic behaviour to find and optimise polymerisation reactions. Scientific knowledge then has to evolve into process technologies enabling economic, robust and safe production.

Among many other developments and implications, increased precision in tailoring polymers continue to fuel progress in PRE. The workshop also benefits substantially from process analytics and the rapidly increasing abilities in modelling and simulation (and thereby control) of processes in the general area of reaction engineering.

The Scientific Committee, DECHEMA Society for Chemical Technology and Biotechnology and the University of Hamburg cordially invite you to participate in the 13th International Workshop on Polymer Reaction Engineering in Hamburg/Germany.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
