EUFAR became an AISBL !

After a lenghty period de negotiation of about 2 years, 8 European institutions representing 6 different countries involved in airborne environmental research have signed the necessary Statutes to constitute EUFAR as an AISBL – an international non-profit association under Belgian law. These documents were deposited with the Belgian courts on 30 August 2017. The formal constitution of the EUFAR AISBL was officially publicised in the Moniteur belge on 23 January 2018 (search by N° Entreprise: 687.812.944 or Dénomination: EUFAR).
