SAMCAPS is a high-quality research program that aims to train young professionals in the field of colloid and polymer science through the collaboration between top-level European academic and industrial entities. The goal of the project is to address the current need for bio-degradable materials and efficient consumer goods usage, by exploiting new eco-friendly materials and methods of encapsulation that will be applied in home- and beauty care consumer products where the targeted delivery of beneficial actives is required.
In this way, SAMCAPS tackles the challenge of the chemical industry, as a response to international undertakings such as the Paris Climate Act and the Europe 2020 policies for smart, for sustainable and effective chemical use driving the growth of the industry.
This program will contribute to a resource-efficient Europe, by the development of highly qualified scientists, experts in the needs chemical industry of tomorrow, by design of highly effective and functionalized materials through green methods, and efficient use of materials by encapsulation and targeted delivery of benefit agents in a broad variety of consumer good products. The ground-breaking and environmentally sustainable technologies developed through the exchange of knowledge between industry and academia will thereby translate into economic and societal value.
