EGC 2024 Webinar Schedule

Our webinar series is now recognised by the European Chemical Society


A series of free to attend Webinars to highlight the innovative and ground breaking glycoscience research in Europe and Globally. This is part of the EGCs long-term vision in establishing a European-wide glycoscience research network with strong links with leading scientists from around the world. The Webinar series is open to all international scientists and will provide a platform for young and established researchers to network, share ideas, and build long-term partnerships to drive glycoscience innovation in the four CarboMet Bioindustry sectors.

If you are interested in participating in the series, please complete the Expression of Interest form and a member of the team will be in touch
