CE PoliMaT at the »International Conference on TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT - Schumpeter and Polymer Research"


On June 4 and 5, 2012, Harvard Kennedy School hosted the "International Conference on TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT - Schumpeter and Polymer Research".

The conference featured renowned scientists, high-tech companies, mayors and science attaches from all around the world. CE PoliMaT was invited by Harvard Kennedy School to organize and participate in the section dealing with the development of polymers (fields: energy, environment, agriculture and health).

»Slovenia holds a strong position in this field and it is important for us at Harvard to establish a long-term collaboration«, said the conference president, Professor of the Practice of International Development at Harvard Kennedy School, Calestous Juma. He especially emphasized the importance of polymer application in the fields of health and agriculture.

The participants were greeted through a video speech by the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Dr. Danilo Türk. Türk emphasized the role of development as a global category and complimented the Centre's partnership network in Europe and America, the latter holding prime position in the field of modern technologies.

»President Türk is aware how important CE PoliMaT is for Slovene economy and international cooperation«, said Calestous Juma. »When it comes to new technologies most countries simply want to boost their own competition advantages while President Türk emphasizes the role of technology in the development of global partnerships«.

At the conference CE PoliMaT presented innovations and scientific work in the field of polymer materials and technology. Introductory lecture was held by Prof. Dr. Karin Stana Kleinschek, followed by Dr. Zorica Crnjak Orel, Aljoša Vrhunec, M.Sc., of the PoliMaT spin-off company MikroCaps d.o.o. and PoliMaT industry partners' representatives from Akripol d.d. and Helios Group

The PoliMaT team also attended a number of business and scientific meetings at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center  and  Department for Polymer Science and Engineering at the  University of Massachusetts Amherst .
