Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter Mai 2010: Lecture Programme soon available online

Dear Industrial partner and future Euro Fed Lipid corporate member,

The European Federation for the Science and Technology of Lipids (Euro Fed Lipid) would like to invite you to present your company at its
Oils, Fats and Lipids: Health & Nutrition, Chemistry & Energy, 21-24 November 2010, Munich.

Euro Fed Lipid, today an international federation of 11 national Oils and Fats associations from different European countries, and still expanding, is involved in the European trade fair "Oils+Fats", until 2009 a yearly event organized in Munich by the Messe Munich. To reply better to the needs and demands of the Oils and Fats industry, this Oils and Fats exhibition will continue from 2011 as a bi-annual trade fair, thereby skipping the 2010 trade fair.

In order to allow industry to present its latest technologies and services, Euro Fed Lipid is offering the industry the possibility to rent a table top at the Euro Fed Lipid conference in Munich. This annual conference offers also a good forum for exchanging ideas and remaining up to date of new and future developments and furthermore gives industry the chance to become scientifically more visible. Euro Fed Lipid and its member associations would really welcome a more active presence of the industry, to enhance interaction with the different scientific associations.

I would therefore like to ask especially the industry to consider an active presence at this conference and/or support Euro Fed Lipid by applying for a corporate Euro Fed Lipid membership.
If you want to present your company in Munich and use this unique opportunity, see
for details.
React fast as table tops are limited !

If you want to support Euro Fed Lipid by becoming a corporate member, please visit our website  or simply contact Frank Amoneit
I count on your active presence in Munich,

Marc Kellens

Sports: FC Bayern Munich

FC Bayern Munich is best known for its professional football team, which is the most successful club in German football, having won 21 German titles and 14 cups.

Since the beginning of the 2005/06 season, Bayern plays its home games in the Allianz Arena. Previously the team had played for 33 years in the Olympic Stadium. The team colours are red and white, and the team crest shows the colours of Bavaria.

Bayern is a membership-based club with more than 152,000 members.There are also more than 2,500 officially-registered fan clubs with about 181,700 members.The club has other departments for chess, handball, basketball, gymnastics, bowling, table tennis, referees, and senior football with more than 1,100 active members.

Bayern signed manager Louis Van Gaal for the 2009/10 season from AZ of Alkmaar. While under speculation due to a strand of poor results, Van Gaal managed to advance Bayern through to the round of 16 with a convincing 4/1 display over Juventus FC in Turin.

They drew Fiorentina as their opponent in the round of 16 in the Champions League.On March 9, they lost to Fiorentina 3-2 but advanced to the quarter-final on the away goals rule. In the quarter-final clash against Manchester United, Bayern achieved a similar score to their Fiorentina games, edging United 4-4 and progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League on away goals, with them winning 2-1 at home and losing 3-2 away.

On the 27th of April, Bayern beat Olympique Lyonnais 3-0 after winning 1-0 in the first leg. That result sent 'FC Bayern' to the UEFA Champions League Final 2009-10, which is scheduled for 22 May in Madrid.
