CSP Annual Meeting 2024 – April 24

Professional Development

We are excited to celebrate CSP’s 13 years of progress since being awarded an NSF Center for Chemical Innovation (CCI) grant in 2011. While NSF CCI funding sunsets this year, the CSP headquartered here at UMN will continue to advance work at the intersection of sustainability and polymer science in research, education, and outreach. Wednesday’s activities focus on community building among CSP participants and professional development activities. This portion of the meeting is not open to the public, and is tailored for CSP faculty, CSP researchers, and CSP Alumni.
