Belgian Group of Rheology

The Belgian Group of Rheology (BGR) was founded in 1972 and is an association of scientists interested in the various aspects of rheology. Members are individuals, normally working in Belgium (but not exclusively), either in academic or industrial organizations.

The BGR organizes typically one activity per year. It also represents its members in international organizations such as the International Committee on Rheology. The BGR was one of the founding societies of the European Society of Rheology.
