Summer Course Glycosciences

17th European Training Course on Carbohydrates

The 17th Summer Course Glycosciences combines general introductions in the field of carbohydrates and glycoproteins with in-depth sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to focus on specific interests without losing a broad education. All lecturers will be present for further discussion with participants.

Course Design
The course consists of introductory and more in-depth lectures sessions. In addition many interactive elements are part of the programme (e.g. poster sessions, interviews with lecturers, lunches and dinners) to encourage networking between participants and lecturers.

The course is at graduate level. The course is a must for those working in academia, research institutes or industry that want to refresh and deepen their knowledge on carbohydrates and for graduate students working on a PhD project related to carbohydrate chemistry, biochemistry, biology, chemical technology or food science. All participants are encouraged to bring a poster in which they introduce themselves and their work.
