The SEC Technology Tours

At these events - preferably a mixture of culture and chemistry - the focus is not only on discovering new horizons, but also on social contact for seniors. In addition to the seniors from the GDCh, the seniors from the VAA, Hanau-Wolfgang factory group, usually also take part in these excursions.
