We are very happy that Marianne Lahnsteiner and Fabián Andrés Amaya García joined us for their PhDs! Marianne will work on the hydrothermal synthesis of organic frameworks within our FWF START project “The hydrothermal route to functional organic frameworks”, and Fabián will work on the synthesis of novel fluorescent dyes within our WWTF project “3C Read more about Welcome to our new PhD students Marianne and Fabián[…]
Miriam’s TEDxTUWien talk “Under pressure – How to create materials inspired by nature” is now online. Watch the video here.
Elias and Tobia participated in this year’s Vienna Young Scientist Symposium (VSS 2018). Elias gave a talk entitled “Environmentally Friendly Generation of High-Performance Polyimide Foams Using Monomer Salts”, and Tobia gave a pitch talk and presented his poster “Design of Non-Spherical Colloidal Polymer Particles for Self-Assembled Materials”. Tobia was awarded the best presenter award – Read more about Vienna Young Scientist Symposium: Best presenter award for Tobia[…]
With our company UGP materials, we won this years S&B (Science and Business) award by the Sallinger Fonds! The S&B award is the most important Austrian award for early stage start-up companies derived from university research. Watch the video of the award ceremony here, and read the press releases by the Sallinger Fonds and TU Read more about Sallinger Fonds S&B award for UGP materials![…]
The evening event “Forschung bewegt” at TU Wien is showing selected research areas via guided tours. This years focus was “Materials and Matter”. Miriam hosted guided tours in our labs entitled “Environmentally friendly syntheses of high-performance materials”. Thanks to all the visitors for their interest! Read more about the event here.

Michi J.T. is participating in the Bordeaux Polymer Conference (BPC 2018) and presenting our work on polyimides with his poster “Towards Materials Applications of Polyimides Generated by Hydrothermal Polymerization” – looking forward to an outstanding lineup at BPC 2018!
Today the newly elected members of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW), among which Miriam, received their decrees at the admission ceremony. We are honored that Miriam was elected member of the Young Academy! Read the official OeAW press release here.
Michi J. T. and Elias are attending the conference “Polymeric Insulators for applications in electrical engineering” (Polymere Isolierstoffe in der Elektrotechnik) hosted by the Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies (Verband der Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und Informationstechnik e.V., VDE) in Zittau. Today, Michi J. T. gave a great talk entitled “Composites of highly crystalline polyimides”.
This week, Miriam is in Shanghai participating in the Sino-German Young Scientist Forum “Polymer Chemistry in Functional Materials”, funded by the Sino-German Center for Research Promotion (SGC). Looking forward to a great meeting!
