A two day workshop on glycomaterials took place on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th January 2019 in Grenoble and was attended by 30 delegates from academia and industry. The objective of the workshop was to formulate a positioning paper on glycomaterials.

The workshop was introduced by the workshop hosts and CarboMet working group members Anne Imberty (CERMAV) and Serge Perez (CNRS).

A series of flash presentations from the delegates on various aspects allowed a review of the current status of research across Europe. There were group discussions to identify the challenges and needs, strategic areas for research and to establish an action plan for the future.

Next steps: A short positioning paper will be formulated based on discussions that took place during the workshop. If you were unable to attend the meeting but would like to know more or to provide input to the paper please contact projectmanager@carbomet.eu
