  • Annual General Meeting: Michel PONS will prepare a first draft of the financial report using the data provided by Air Liquide. Bryn STENHOUSE will prepare a first draft of the activity report.
  • CAPE-OPEN survey: requests to Associate Members to help with disseminating the link did not succeed so far. Michel PONS has notified all CO-LaN Members of the survey through their designated representatives and has requested, through Air Liquide, help from the CAPE Working Party of Société Française de Génie des Procédés to advertise the survey. Since only 71 answers have been received so far, Michel PONS will contact again the CO-LaN Members.

Next meeting is scheduled for September 13, 2018.
