7TH INTERNATIONAL POLYSACCHARIDE CONFERENCE – EPNOE
du lundi 11 octobre au vendredi 15 octobre 2021
Welcome to the 7th International Congress of the European Polysaccharide Network of Excellence in 2021.
It is our great pleasure and honor to announce that the 7th International Polysaccharide Conference of the European Polysaccharide Network of Excellence, EPNOE, will take place in Nantes from the 11th to the 15th October 2021.
We are monitoring the COVID situation closely and, assuming the deployments of vaccination strategies stay on course and taking all the necessary safety measures, as it stands for the moment, it will be possible to have a presential event in October in Nantes, France.
On behalf of the EPNOE association, the Cellulose and Renewable Materials division of the American Chemical Society, and the Cellulose Society of Japan, the conference will be organized by five French laboratories recognized for their research in polysaccharides and their commitments to EPNOE.
In the best traditions of EPNOE, the conference will promote wide dissemination of research results and cross-fertilization of ideas in the field of polysaccharides. The scientific program is based on the advice of eminent scientists from the scientific committee and proposals of topics from session organizers. Our ambition is to have a scientific program that covers all fundamental and applied research involving polysaccharides. The conference venue will offer a friendly environment and excellent conditions for networking and exchange of ideas.
The 7th EPNOE conference will take place in Nantes, an attractive, eco-friendly and comfortable sized city, easily accessible from all over the world. We hope that your stay will be enjoyable and fruitful.
We wish you a pleasant stay in France and in Nantes.
