In order to slow down the spread of the corona virus, we at the MPI for Polymer Research have decided that
Most of our employees are working at home | Research in our laboratories is reduced to a minimum | Seminars and visits by guests are suspended until further notice | No business trips | Meetings are replaced by video conferences wherever possible | Employees returning from abroad stay at home for 14 days.

Stay healthy!

Prof. Hans-Jürgen Butt, Managing director of the MPI for Polymer Research
