The “Ružička's Days” is a traditional review of scientific activity from the field of chemistry, chemical & biochemical engineering, materials science and engineering, and related sciences, dedicated to the memory of the famous Croatian chemist and first Croatian Nobel Prize laureate professor Lavoslav (Leopold) Ružička.

The topic of the 18th meeting is “Today Science – Tommorow Industry” since the organizing committee wishes to emphasize the importance of the implementation of science research and achievements. The program will include plenary lectures of invited renowned speakers and scientific poster sessions.
