Vision and Goals

The chief objective of the NSERC NIPMMP is to develop a wide range of novel polymer materials and technologies that will make Canada a prominent innovator in original, high-value-added plastic products and related manufacturing processes. Above all, the network’s themes are united by a drive to produce value-added plastic commodities that are lightweight, high strength, low density, versatile, environmentally friendly, and cost effective, and that do not compromise any of the functionality displayed by more traditional plastic products currently on the market. In fact, we aim to significantly widen the functional spectrum of plastics in the context of developing novel materials and technologies that meet a wider range of application requirements in the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, construction, packaging, and electronics industries.
