Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter September 2009: Brand-New: Oils-Fats-Lipids Wiki


Dear Reader,

Everyone is complaining these days. The "crisis" is the overriding topic. Controllers are the people taking all the decisions, and cutting costs seems to be all that matters.

In response, people usually think only of the most obvious: cutting back on business trips and that trade fair visits are out of the question.
Will this short-term thinking really lead to the desired results?

Guenter Simon

Starting on 16 September 2009, the 3rd oils+fats will be held in Munich, and our company will be there showing colours, as it has done in the past with undiminished commitment because there is nothing that makes more sense - even from a purely cost-benefit viewpoint - than to attend this core event with top-class participants, either as an exhibitor or visitor. This is the perfect opportunity to get a comprehensive overview of state-of-the art technologies in the sector of oil production and processing from renewable resources.

I look forward to welcoming all those who are going to further enhance the importance of this key trade fair by their presence.

Oils-Fats-Lipids Wiki

Welcome to the brand-new Oils-Fats-Lipids Wiki (OFLWiki) of Euro Fed Lipid.

This Wiki serves as a collection of data and information about all varieties of Fats, Oils and Lipids. It is made by and for the academic and industrial community of Lipid Science and Technology. You are kindly invited to contribute!

Wikis (best known example: Wikipedia) are written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world. Anyone with internet access can make changes to Wiki articles.

Visitors do not need specialized qualifications to contribute. The intent is to have articles that cover existing knowledge, not create new knowledge. Anyone is welcome to add information, cross-references, or citations, as long as they do so within the editing policies and to an appropriate standard.

Because each Wiki is an ongoing work to which, in principle, anybody can contribute, it differs from a paper-based reference source in important ways. In particular, older articles tend to be more comprehensive and balanced, while newer articles more frequently contain misinformation or unencyclopedic content. However, unlike a paper reference source, a Wiki is continually updated, with the creation or updating of articles on topical events within seconds, minutes, or hours, rather than months or years for printed encyclopedias.

Try it, it's easy! 

Go here to explore the world of OFLWiki and return often to improve the Wiki
