The closing of the camp in Idomeni, negotiations between Turkey and Europe – the refugee crisis is and remains present. Between the problems and open questions it is good to hear positive news atleast every once in a while - such as stories about people who have found a new job in Europe or are able do their practical training here.
Hard to believe it, but it's just around the corner: the European Coatings Show is putting out calls for industry to submit abstracts. I can’t wait to see which new trends emerge. At the last show in 2015, there were quite a few submissions on isocyanate-free paint systems – one of them even landed the prestigious ECS Award. Will biometics be the new trend in 2017?
