European Glycoscience Community Webinars

29 August 2020 00:00 - 31 December 2020 00:00, United Kingdom

The RSC Carbohydrate Interest Group has been working closely with CarboMet and European scientists to establish the European Glycoscience Community. This is an outreach venture to promote engagement, foster collaborations and disseminate advances in European glycoscience research which will be carried out through a series of webinars and networking events. It is a fully inclusive event which encourages participation from early career researchers for both presentations and chairing sessions. We have put together an exciting program for 2020 featuring researchers from across Europe and have two sessions joint with the American Chemical Society Carbohydrate group also. The full program for the remainder of the year is below and registration for the events is being hosted throught the CarboMet webpage. Please see the registration URL for details. 

If you are interested in presenting or chairing a session please get in touch with the RSC Carbohydrate group secretary at
