EGC 2022 Webinar schedule

European Glycoscience Community Webinar Series

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 send an expression of interest to the organising committee at aisling.nicheallaigh@manchester.ac.uk
