Conference Announcement

of the 20th European Meeting on Fire Retardant Polymeric Materials (“FRPM25”)

Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we extend this invitation to you for the 20th European Meeting on Fire Retardant Polymeric Materials (FRPM25), which will be hosted in Madrid, Spain, from the 3rd to the 6th of June, 2025.

Flame retardancy in polymeric materials is paramount due to its critical role in enhancing safety across numerous industries and applications. These materials, found in everyday objects ranging from electronics to construction materials, carry inherent flammability risks that can lead to devastating consequences if not adequately addressed. By improving the fire resistance of polymeric materials, flame retardancy not only safeguards lives and property but also ensures the reliability and sustainability of various products and infrastructures. Moreover, the demand for effective flame-retardant solutions has never been more pressing in an increasingly interconnected world where rapid urbanization and technological advancements are reshaping our living environments. Therefore, ongoing research and innovation in flame retardant polymeric materials play a pivotal role in advancing safety standards, fostering resilience, and promoting sustainable development on a global scale.

Over the past four decades, FRPM has served as a beacon for the exchange of knowledge and innovative ideas in the field of flame-retardant materials. This meeting is a celebration of our tireless commitment to the advancements in the field of flame retardant materials and an opportunity to showcase the remarkable progress achieved through the combined efforts of diverse global communities worldwide.

Furthermore, Madrid, renowned for its rich cultural heritage and vibrant atmosphere, provides an inspiring backdrop for our conference. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity not only to broaden your professional horizons but also to experience the unique charm and hospitality of this historic city.

As we embark on this significant milestone, we invite you to join us in shaping the future of flame-retardant polymeric materials. Your participation and contributions will be instrumental in making this conference a resounding success.

We look forward to meeting you in Madrid in June 2025 for what we promised will be a memorable and impactful event.
