The Polymer laboratory established by Dr. Milan Lazar at the end of 1962 created the conditions for founding the Polymer Institute in 1967.
The Institute initiated the focused research in polymer chemistry as a part of the chemical research at the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Currently Polymer Institute SAS represents an important research and training center for basic and applied research in the contemporary topics of polymer chemistry. The Institute activities cover four areas: synthesis and characterization, composite polymeric materials, polymeric biomaterials and molecular simulation of polymers.

As a result of the PISAS accreditation for years 2016 – 2021, the international accreditation panel of experts evaluated the Institute with the highest rating A characterized as “The research is internationally leading within the European context. The Institute has demonstrated important contributions to the field.”
