8th European Weathering Symposium EWS

(XXXth Colloquium of Danubian Countries on Natural and Artificial Ageing of Polymers)

Launched in 1967 by four relevant institutes from Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Yugoslavia, the Colloquia of Danubian Countries have been the only exclusive meetings in the field of natural and artificial weathering of polymers for now 50 years. Relaunched as EWS they have attracted a broader scope of attendees.
