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.


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.

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.
