Petru Poni Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry (Institutul de Chimie Macromoleculara Petru Poni, ICMPP) is an Institute of excellence of the Romanian Academy. Established in February 1949, the Institute has a long tradition of over seventy years in fundamental and applied research in the field of organic and inorganic chemistry, polymer chemistry and physics.
The main mission of ICMPP consists in the accumulation, dissemination and valorization of knowledge obtained through fundamental and applied research in areas of national, European and international interest.
To achieve the desired excellence in research, the strategic objectives of the Institute aim at performance in human resource education and specialization (PhD, post-doctoral) or are oriented towards the application of scientific results through the transfer of knowledge and technologies or to provide services and consultancy for economic agents.
The Institute's research program, focusing on the main field of research - polymers and polymer materials science - has been periodically reconsidered both by implementing an internal call system for project proposals and by promoting areas considered strategic for the Institute.
