📢Announcing the 21st Australasian Polymer Summer School! #21APSS

For the first time, the APSS will be entirely digital, and free!

📅 15 - 19 February, 2021 via Zoom
⏰ 2 hours of lectures and Q+A sessions each day

A great lineup of speakers is being put together!

Thank you so much for having me - an absolute pleasure to present @QUTmaterials @QUT
