International, interactive tutorial for students from developing
countries in modern techniques of polymer characterization.
This Educational Project in Polymer Science is in particular suited
for students from developing and "third world" countries
to up-date their knowledge and skills in polymer characterization
by interactive oral courses presented (1 day) by distinguished scientists.
Since this annual course is moving to a new place in each year (
Singapore, Japan >Brazil< India, Slovak Republic
tutorial is not restricted to one country or just one geographical
Since the tutorial takes place in the
days before an important IUPAC-sponsored Conference (World
Forum on Advanced Materials-POLYCHAR 15), the tutorial has also
proven to be a good opportunity to prepare the students for their
participation in the following conference, where many of them is
given the chance to present their scientific work (IUPAC Student
Poster Award). With the tutorial being an independent event, the
chronological proximity and order have been proven to be of great
advantage for the success of the Tutorial. With topics in different
fields of polymer characterization, the focus is shifted each year
slightly. The tutorial takes advantage of the fact that the course
lecturers are participants of the following POLYCHAR World Forum
and are available for the students for a whole week.
