enjamin was selected as one of 20 participants of the Leibniz Young Polymer Scientist Forum, organized by DWI and Evonik Industries in Aachen (June 28 – 29, 2018)

The two-day Leibniz Young Polymer Scientist Forum provides a forum to sharpen current scientific questions, to identify new challenges and to team up in order to tackle these challenges. The participants formed interdisciplinary teams and tackled a specific research challenge in one of the three main topics (Smart Polymers, Additive Manufacturing & Engineering, Biobased Polymers)

Benjamin was part the winning team that received the Evonik Young Scientist Award. Their project “Deligel” describes a nutraceutical, which releases several supplements specifically. Their system circumvents many problems of classic oral drug uptake and could be an option for people with swallowing difficulties.
