We are thrilled to welcome the first of four Early Stage Researchers to our project!

Flore Kilens (ESR1) obtained a double Master’s degree from the University of Strasbourg (France) and the University of the Basque Country (Spain) in Polymer Science. Guided by a deep concern for the current challenges facing the plastics industry, she aims to pursue her research on biosourced polymers and their industrial applications. She´s just joined our industrial partner POLYKEY where her PhD project will focus on the use of biobased polyols to synthesise novel aromatic-like polyesters with enhanced mechanical and barrier properties to meet food packaging demands. Welcome, Flore!
