Background

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.

Our Mission

 We aim to unite people interested in the fields of drug delivery and release who are located in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and France by sharing the news, announcing meetings, exhibitions, events and organizing topical educational workshops.  


By creating connections between industrial and academic chapter members  we stimulate local delivery science community, enhance collaborations, provide networks and opportunities.
