The Plastics Innovation Competence Center (PICC) (www.PICC.center), is a multi-disciplinary one-stop industrial R&D center for innovative short and long term science and technology developments in the field of plastics. It is a location and platform for bringing academics and industrialists together for jointly addressing the challenges in plastics materials development, processing, and product design through innovative approaches. Tailored problem solving is combined with breakthrough R&D focused on the position in the circular economy of conventional plastics and novel nature-inspired synthetic organic materials by using modeling and novel processing technologies. The PICC is part of the School of Engineering and Architecture (HEIA-FR) in Fribourg (CH) and integrates plastics related R&D activities of multiple institutes (Chemtec, iRAP, iCoSys, iTEC), (https://recherche.heia-fr.ch/EN/Pages/home.aspx). The Department of Mechanical Engineering of the HEIA-FR offers a practice-based engineer education with a specialization in plastics processing.
Mission and Scope of Activities
The Plastics Innovation Competence Center is looking for an R&D position for its new research collaboration with three industry partners. In collaboration with the industry partners the candidate will initially work on a project for the optimisation of the reuse of engineering plastics in injection moulded parts for automotive and electrical applications. The key objective of this project is to define a practical recycling methodology. In addition, the candidate shall participate in the setting up of additional R&D projects and larger consortia programs in collaboration with the industry partners and write funding requests. Team and the industry partners supporting the present and future projects.
