Prof. Philippe Dubois

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).
