EuCheMS General Assembly has recently agreed, in Rome, to set up a Working Working Party on Formulation in Chemistry. This new Working Party, proposed by Prof. Alain Durand, was initially discussed by the Executive Board who consulted all EuCheMS Professional Networks. Following this internal discussion, the Executive Board presented a recommendation for the General Assembly to approve the creation of this new Professional Network.
