"Emulsion Polymerization Processes" Course




Course on Emulsion Polymerization Processes September 7-11, 2020

Letter from the Organizing Committee:

Dear All,
As you are all aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption to our day-to-day lives and it is uncertain how the situation will evolve in the coming months. However, at one point, it will become necessary for all of us to make an effort to restore our regular activities. It is with this in mind that we wish to announce that we have decided to proceed with the annual Course on Emulsion Polymerization Processes that is scheduled to take place in September 2020. If circumstances allow traveling and meetings, the course will be held as usual in San Sebastián. If this is not possible, the course will be given on-line over 4 weeks (one day per week).
