The Hellenic Association for Aerosol Research (HAAR) is a
nonprofit professional organization for scientists and engineers who
wish to promote and communicate Science
and Technology (S&T) in the field of
HAAR aims to the exchange of information among members
and with other disciplines through conferences, symposia, and workshops.
HAAR membership represents all areas of aerosol science including:
Air Pollution, Instrumentation/Measurement, Aerosol Chemistry, Material Synthesis,
