Center for Layered Polymeric Systems sponsors first industrial showcase
(Nanowerk News) The National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center for Layered Polymeric Systems (CLiPS) is presenting its first Industrial Showcase on Tuesday, October 21, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Case Western Reserve University.
CLiPS researchers have developed an event at which representatives from industry across the country will have the opportunity to learn about the activities of the center. The showcase provides an in-depth review of the advanced research taking place and the potential for new technologies with industrial significance.
Participants will have the opportunity to examine CLiPS' research and technologies in detail and to discuss opportunities for collaboration. Currently more than 40 companies representing an international mix of industries have registered for this event.
CLiPS is the first ever NSF Science and Technology Center awarded to Case Western Reserve University. The CLiPS approach strategically integrates education in polymer science and engineering with research in nanotechnology, optics, membranes, laser physics and other scientific disciplines in a "polymers-plus" concept.
CLiPS is directed by Eric Baer, Leonard Case Professor, and co-directed by Anne Hiltner, Herbert Henry Dow Professor of Science and Engineering. Research presented at the showcase will represent collaborative work being done across the center that includes partnerships with the University of Texas, Fisk University, the University of Southern Mississippi and the Naval Research Laboratory.
