The Centre of Polymer Systems is a new unit established thanks to the project of the same name financed from the European Funds and from the state budget of the Czech Republic. The building is located in the centre of the Regional city of Zlín and is run by the Tomas Bata University in Zlin.
Focusing on applied research of polymers, the Centre is connecting the academic and business spheres.
The aim of the project is to significantly expand the existing research infrastructure of TBU in Zlín and to create the Centre of Polymer Systems (CPS) as a dynamic research unit with long-term sustainability and high added value. Being an important regional research centre, CPS will support the national plastics and rubber industries from the perspective of the personnel, technology and knowledge and will at the same time operate internationally at all levels of its activities.
