Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved. In actuality, these two articles are already sitting at the names proposed here, so that decision is confirmed. EMPA and EAWAG will continue to serve as redirects to the long English names. EdJohnston (talk) 16:58, 29 May 2013 (UTC)



{{requested move/dated}}

– Correct and usual ways to abbreviate these names. Relisted. BDD (talk) 17:15, 11 May 2013 (UTC) Agroduct (talk) 08:39, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose: The official name has been Eawag or Eawag: Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (ref) since 2005, but not just the second part alone. Before 2005, the name was EAWAG (see p. 13).
    Similarly, the original name EMPA was changed to Empa a couple of years ago. I am, however, missing a reference for the actual year. --Leyo 23:00, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
