This broad course in 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. Many of the lecturers will be present during the week for further discussion with participants. The programme is set up in such a way that about 20 to 25 % of the time is for discussions with experts and participants.
The course is at graduate level. The course is a must for those working in academia, research institutes or industry that want to refresh 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.
