Last 17th-19th June BARBARA project had a complete special session in the 7th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable polymers, in Stockholm. Also we had one stand with the last samples, the new BARBARA project leaflets, a box to let the contact to revived more information and the newsletter subscription request and a computer to make the subscription on-site if someone would like to do it. The BARBARA project stand was next to the Conference sponsors stands, next to the conferences rooms and in front of the coffee breaks place. A lot of people shown interest in the project and ask to the staff for more information about the BARBARA project.
