Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter August 2009: News from the divisions
Dear Reader,
the plant lipids division, focusing on understanding and exploiting the rich chemical diversity of the "green" Kingdom now has two new chairpersons. Joining Prof. Ivo Feussner in this division are Dr. Rene Lessire (Universite Bordeaux II, France) and Prof. Johnathan Napier (Rothamsted Research, UK) - both have expertise in basic and applied aspects of plant lipids, including biotechnology. The two of them replace Elisabeth Blée, and all recognise the contribution she has made to the continued success of the Plant Lipids Division.  With the growing appreciation of the contribution plant lipid will make to the bio-economy, ranging from biofuels to high value nutritional fatty acids, it is an exciting time to be carrying out research in this field.
If you are a member of Euro Fed Lipid and you wish to join the plant lipid division (free of charge) or any other of the Euro Fed Lipid divisions simply contact the headquarters.

200 lectures and more than 300 posters shall provide the current status and future developments in a multitude of discliplines concerned with fats and oils. But it is not only the top-class science that has made the Euro Fed Lipid congress so tremendously popular: The perfect opportunity for international networking may be as important a reason to attend.

Graz - Slow Down

Much has already been written about the special southern flair of the city; many people appreciate its "italianitá" - and possibly overlook the fact that Graz has drawn on a wide range of influences to become a quite unique place. It is located at an intersection of European cultural regions where the Italian, Pannonian and Slavonic have all blended beneath the external fabric of the city.

On the Clock Tower, the emblem of Graz, the big hand shows the hours and the little hand shows the minutes. This isn't a foolish flight of fancy but a well worked out trick to make peoples' lives that more pleasant. For in the days when not everyone carried a watch about them it was easy to glance at the clock and see how late it was. Most importantly, it always tended to show that there was just enough time to enjoy a final swift glass of wine among friends. There's still plenty of time to do so today.

In Austria, Graz and its surrounding areas are considered the land of milk and honey for the rest of the nation: the fantastic white wines, unique pumpkin seed oil, delicious cured meats and exquisite schnapps form the perfect basis for a culture of top class cuisine that pays heed to the regional and nonchalantly integrates the international.
