Most of our everyday materials are made out of synthetic compounds that are known to have a negative environmental impact and therefore need to be replaced. Soft Matter sciences are ideally placed to address these issues. We aim with this EU-funded FORGREENSOFT project to explore new routes to replace some of these ingredients. The focus is on bio-sourced raw materials obtained through eco-friendly processes. We will achieve this through a multilevel transfer of knowledge and research collaboration between FORTH and European centers of excellence at the University of Vienna in Austria and at the Max-Planck Institute in Germany.
