About us | What we do

Poliefun’s main objectives include supporting the Degree Course in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology, spreading business culture, and offering complete R&D programs.

Joining Poliefun to support the Degree Course in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology and its specialisation in Surface Treatment Engineering can prove the best response to the growing demand for professionals able to apply different finishing technologies in the industrial world, choosing the most suitable techniques and developing the most competitive applications in terms of process, production, and management.

Poliefun’s members benefit from several services and an R&D program on advantageous terms. The program includes a free “research definition” phase and ensures organisational support for the “research carrying out” and “development and spreading” phases.

Poliefun is a concrete example of the way in which the academic and business world can join forces to greatly contribute to the Italian industrial and cultural landscape. Several companies have already joined our association, understanding the importance of this ambitious project.

We will be honoured to include among our members other companies and associations sharing our goals.
