Controlled Release Society

Our Mission

The BeNeLux & France Local Chapter is an offspring from the parental Controlled Release Society Inc., USA (CRS), a worldwide association in the field of delivery of science and technology.


Established in 2019 the BeNeLux & France Local Chapter provides support to Early Career Scientists and acts as a platform for bridging industrial and academic representatives by giving them an extra opportunity to communicate ideas and learn from each other.
