A new feature at K 2013 will showcase the cooperation between academic institutions and commercial enterprises. The “Science Campus” forum will showcase how collaboration is a crucial basis for securing and enhancing nearly every industry segment’s innovative performance and competitive capability.

At this special forum, open on all days of K 2013, numerous scientific organizations will provide an overview of activities and results with the objective to intensify the dialogue between science and industry.

For the first time, 16 universities, institutes and agencies will come together in Hall 7.0 to introduce pioneering technologies and solutions for challenges faced by the plastics and rubber industry. Topics to be presented will include:

· Surfaces (functions and processes);

· Functional integration (materials and processes);

· Lightweight engineering (structural materials and processes);

· Material cycles (renewable resources, biopolymers, recycling);

· Scientific education.

The members of Scientific Board of K 2013, which are the teams from their institutes, will prepare these presentations.

The following academic institutions will participate in the Science Campus at K 2013:
