The general aim of the TRA-PM thematic network was to establish an interface between related RTD projects on polymer materials supported by the EC. The network consisted of four clusters:
1. Polymer chemistry and engineering;
2. Polymers in surface treatment and adhesion;
3. Polymer composites;
4. Recycling of polymer materials.

Forty-eight projects in total have participated in the TRA-PM representing about 500 partners from around 400 universities, research institutes, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and big industries. During the course of the project, the TRA-PM has organised four annual workshops, twenty-five cluster meetings and three Round Table meetings, and published eleven newsletters, three strategic reports, three position papers, two press releases and a website.
