Commemorative Booklet 2019

Every year IVA publishes a Commemorative Booklet to honour a person who some time ago made a significant contribution to society in the areas of engineering sciences, technology, economics or industry. The honourees were born at least 100 years ago. The Commemorative Booklet is published in conjunction with the Annual Meeting at which the individual is also honoured in a commemorative address.
