PICC is a “one-stop shop” for industry to address
technological challenges related to plastics, and to find innovative
solutions for the short & long-term.
PICC offers industry project-based R&I combining the latest science and technology with environmental and commercial requirements for present and future plastic products.
PICC consults on plastics selection and processing, designs alternative product options, and finds innovative sustainable and commercially attractive solutions for specific needs.
In close collaboration with industry partners, tailored solutions are worked out for the desired event horizon.
Typically, Intellectual property (IP) resides with the industry partner on a “first right of refusal" basis.
Projects can include novel polymer chemistry, bio-based feedstock handling and processing, conventional plastics processing with focus on mixing and injection moulding, product performance optimisation and development, product and performance property characterisation, discrete and continuum simulation, process digitalisation and App development, environmental footprint and cost analysis, and patent and literature study.
The cooperation with industry is possible in many different ways according to the specific needs of the enterprise. We offer cooperation within joint projects including public funding as well as contract research or mandate.
