Looking forward to meeting you in Cracow!
This year is unique for the European Federation for the Science and
Technology of Lipids, we have a jubilee, the 10th Euro Fed Lipid
Congress. This year the place to be is Cracow,
where the great opportunity to discuss what we – lipids’ people –
should advice to Europe and to the world, will arise. We will discuss
what we know, what we do not know and what we
need to know about lipids in the future. Every Section should prepare a
short statement about current knowledge and recommendations for the
future: what should be done, what problems
should be solved, which goals should be achieved.
We should also discuss important lipid problems for Europeans, such as
fats and oils labelling (saturated, trans fatty acids, omega-3 ), bad
fat taxes, safety of fats and oils from GMO plants,
a European system of safety examination of fried fats & oils, as
well as the future of biodiesel, biotechnology of lipids, fully refined
vs. cold pressed/virgin oils, functional fats and oils and
related material, fish oil and feed for fish farming among many
others. This is why we need your voice, your opinion and your share in
our final statements. Join us and be part of it.
The Congress title is: “From Science and Technology to Health”. There
is no doubt that lipids are of great influence to our health. Probably,
they are the most important among all food nutrients.
Moreover, the influence of lipids can be extremely good but also
extremely bad. Lipid Science and Technology should relate to
health issues and this is reflected in all main Congress topics.
Discussion is needed to make our raw materials, processing,
biotechnology more healthy and safer for the natural environment.
The location of the 10th Euro Fed Lipid Congress is unique: Cracow. The
City's magic consists of the unique mix of architecture, art and
historical places. Every year Cracow is visited by over 7 million
Our host, Jagiellonian University – is one of the oldest universities
around the world (established in 1364). Additionally we have prepared
for you great trips to interesting and beautiful places around Cracow.
The most important is visit to Nazi Camp Auschwitz Birkenau, place
which has to be visited by every human being. Another trip is to one of
the most beautiful places in the world: the Wieliczka salt mine.
We are delighted to invite you to this beautiful city and look forward
to welcoming you to the 10th Euro Fed Lipid Congress from 23-26
September. Lipids, Cracow and we are waiting for you.

This 1.5-day short course will bring together industry
experts from around the world offering practical information on oilseed
and oil processing and quality issues and how to integrate these in
downstream products. The program is directed at plant engineers,
chemists, technicians, managers, and superintendents.
This is a unique opportunity for new plant personnel
and for those who are experienced to meet experts in the field to
discuss current problems and learn how to enhance their operations.
The course material will also serve as a useful reference for
processors, product formulators, chemists and technicians as well as
business managers familiar with oils & fats processing, and the
production of finished products. Target Group: Decision makers such as technicians, equipment
manufacturers, product formulators, plant engineers, processors,
chemists and sales and marketing specialists.
