Prof. Philippe Dubois

Philippe Dubois, Ph.D. in sciences, is rector-president of University of Mons (Mons, Belgium). He is full professor at Faculty of Sciences where he launched the Laboratory of Polymeric and Composite Materials, Center of Innovation and Research in Materials & Polymers CIRMAP. His expertise covers organic chemistry; macromolecular chemistry; catalysis in polymer materials; and (reactive) processing of (nano)composites and nanohybrid materials, including biosourced materials.

He has published more than 785 peer-reviewed scientific articles/book chapters, 11 books and scientific special journal issues (H-index: 104; overall citations: +54,000) and is the inventor of 73 patents. He is co-founder of NANO4 S.A., a spin-off company of UMONS and Materia Nova research center.

Currently he is the president of the administration board of NANO4 S.A. He is a member of the editorial boards of 19 international scientific journals in the fields of polymer chemistry and materials science. He is a laureate of the FNRS Quinquennal Award in applied exact sciences (2011–2015), the highest scientific award of FNRS delivered every five years by the Belgian FNRS and personally awarded by King Philippe of Belgium. In 2016, he is awarded the excellence research program PEARL (4 millions €) by the National Foundation of Research FNR in Luxembourg. He is personally ranked (18th) in “Top 100 materials scientists of the 2000-2010 decade” by Thomson Reuters and published in Times. In 2020, he appears in the Top 2% World Scientists published by Stanford University (in his domain Polymers, he even integrates the Top 0.2%).

Currently he is president and scientific director of Materia Nova Research Center, Mons. He is adjunct professor at the Chemical Engineering Faculty, Michigan State University, MSU, Lansing (US), honorary professor at University of Luxembourg, and guest professor at the National key-lab of Chemical Engineering, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. He joined the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) where, as scientific director in 2016-17, he launched and installed the National Composite Center of Luxembourg (NCC-L).

Ph. Dubois was vice-rector of research of UMONS for more than 7 years and president of the Royal Society of Chemistry in Belgium in 2006-2007. Ph. Dubois is titular member of the Royal Academy of Sciences, Belgium (since 2010) and elected member of the European Academy of sciences EurASc (Engineering Division) (since 2017).

Dr Antoniya Toncheva

Antoniya Toncheva received a master’s degree in Structural biochemistry (University of Bordeaux 2, France) in 2008 followed by a PhD degree in Macromolecular chemistry within the Laboratory of Bioactive Polymers (LBAP, IP-BAS) in 2012 under the supervision of prof. Iliya Rashkov. In 2013 she held an assistant professor position in the LBAP. Starting from January 2015 she moved to the Laboratory of Polymeric and Composite Materials (University of Mons, Belgium) under the supervision prof. Philippe Dubois for post-doctoral research as part of the BEWARE Fellowships Academia program. Her current scientific focus is on production of micro- and nanostructured materials from biocompatible and biodegradable polymers by electrospinning and reactive extrusion, their characterization and potential biomedical application. She has so far co-authored 9scientific publications in international journals, has participated in 8 grant agreements and is a frequent participant at internationalconferences.

Dr Jérémy Odent

Dr. Jérémy Odent is lecturer at University of Mons. Following works with high-impact polylactide-based nanocomposites during his PhD at Umons, he generated novel ionic nanocomposites as a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University. Since then, he developed new capabilities at Laboratory of Polymeric Materials and Composites in the area of smart polymeric materials and additive manufacturing technologies. Among recent investigations, he designed new 3D-printed polymeric inks capable of forming tough structural elements and providing novel electrical and optical functionalities for sensing and soft robotic applications.
