Foundation: 1954

Mission: The Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials (CMPW) is an institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, conducting activities pursuant to the Act on the Polish Academy of Sciences (Journal of Laws No. 96, item 619 from April 30, 2010). Our primary goal is to conduct interdisciplinary scientific research regarding polymers, various carbon forms, obtaining and testing the properties of new polymer and carbon materials, as well as to conduct development works and to implement their results in the economy. The beginnings of the current Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CMPW PAN) date back to 1954 when the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw opened a Petrochemical Laboratory in Gliwice – the precursor of the current Center, thus initiating the research activity of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Silesia.
