Growing societal awareness of environmental issues has become a driver to promote the design and production of polymeric products based on renewable or biological materials, as we outlined in the preface of the special issues of European Polymer Journal related to previous BiPoCo (Bio-based Polymers and Composites) conferences [1,2]. The BiPoCo 2016 Conference focused on the synthesis, characterization and degradation of biopolymers, the development of biocomposites and included topics on smart, nano-structured systems for controlled molecular release. We placed particular emphasis on issues about biocompatibility, biofunctionality and biodegradability of polymeric materials. Similarly to the previous two conferences, European Polymer Journal is publishing a selection of papers related to the meeting and this special section contains three feature articles and several original research papers with topics on nanoparticulate drug delivery, cell-material interaction, as well as synthesis and modification of biopolymers and hydrogels.
