190 days left for the event begin!

The main Brazilian forum of polymer science and technology, CBPOL - Brazilian Polymer Congress, is organized by the Brazilian Polymer Association – ABPol every two years since 1991. In 2021, it will complete its 30 years of event, attracting around 800 participants per event. The 16th CBPol will be held from October 24 to 28, 2021 in Ouro Preto, a historic city of baroque architecture in Brazil. Ouro Preto can be considered a “jewel” embedded in the mountains of Minas Gerais. The “mineiros” (people from the state of Minas Gerais) are known for their kind and hospitality, receiving visitors from all parts of Brazil and the world. At this event, internationally renowned scientists, researchers and students from Brazil, Latin America and other countries will present and discuss their research in polymer science and engineering. At the same time, there will be exhibitions and technical lectures by companies that produce polymers and laboratory equipment.

CBPol will only happen with your participation.

Be welcome!
