Nature volume 149, page 577 (23 May 1942) | Download Citation



AN Association of Austrian Engineers, Chemists and Scientific Workers in Great Britain has recently been formed. The main activities of the Association will be to assist members in their professional work and interests, to represent them with the authorities, to promote contact and relations with British colleagues and to form a link with British scientific and technical institutions. Lectures, courses and discussions will be held and will give opportunities for the exchange of views and to discuss matters of mutual interest. It is hoped that the Association may assure that better use is made of the knowledge and abilities of Austrian engineers, chemists and scientific workers who are anxious to assist in the war effort. The acting chairman of the Association is Dr. F. Ehrenfest-Egger ; inquiries should be sent to the honorary secretary, Mrs. K. Hilfreich, 133 Hatherley Court, London, W.2. Lectures are being given on the first Monday of each month. Every Monday, commencing June 1, at 7 p.m., a club-room will be open for members of the Association at the Austrian Centre, 69 Eton Avenue, N.W.3, where there will be opportunities to read technical periodicals and to meet other colleagues.
