On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee we would like to express our deep appreciation to each of you who attended our “The Plastics Heritage Congress 2019: History, Limits and Possibilities”, held in Lisbon, from 29th to 31st May 2019.
We are delighted to have had more than 200 international participants, from 24 countries, whose presence greatly contributed to the success of this academic meeting.
The theme of this congress has continuously proven to be of great relevance, covering a wide range of valuable and multidisciplinary approaches, both from theoretical and methodological perspectives, to the study of polymeric materials.
We truly hope that this meeting was as fruitful to you as it was to us. We also hope to have fostered a favorable atmosphere for scientific exchange and dialogue as well as provided an open platform to look into the challenges ahead of us.
The Local Organizing Committee further hopes that the exhibition “Plasticity – A History of Plastics in Portugal” was of your utmost interest. This exhibition (https://www.cm-leiria.pt/pages/673?event_id=4163), taking place at Museu de Leiria, has been met with great enthusiasm since its official inauguration in April this year, where around 400 people gathered once again to discuss the relevance of plastic materials. It is of our absolute interest that you enjoyed the event and that it brought innovative and insightful outlooks into the study of plastics.
Once again, we thank you for your presence and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Lisbon.
