Under the title “Innovative partnerships in EU: PVC & Medical, PVC & Arts!” Mr. Hansen’s richly illustrated presentation centered on how multifaceted PVC is as a material. Using Danish artists as examples, Mr. Hansen explained how PVC can both be used to make renowned art and excellent medical devices.
