The Jury of the Eurosymbol Program appreciated the Center for its research in the MEMSTENT project, within which there has been developed the basis of the technology for obtaining new-generation biocompatible surgical systems with the unique property of shape memory induced within the temperature of human body. The project was co-financed by the European Union, within the Innovative Economy Program.

SYMBOL is a general-Polish promotional program managed by the editorial staff of Monitor Rynkowy (Market Monitor) in the Dziennik Gazeta Prawna newspaper.

In short

The Center belongs to category A of scientific facilities in Poland. It was established on January 1, 2007 as a result of a merger of the Center of Polymer Chemistry of PAN in Zabrze and the Institute of Carbochemistry of PAN in Gliwice – two centers of the Polish Academy of Sciences which, for many years, had been conducting systematic work on the production and properties of macromolecular polymer and carbon materials.
