Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter September 2010: Countdown to the biggest fats&oils congress  in Germany since 1973

Dear Reader,
Nordic Lipidforum is for the third time organizing The Lipidforum Academy, 15th to 19th June 2011, in Ålesund, Norway. The aim of the course is to give the participants a relative broad overview on selected topics within the field of lipid science and technology (e . g Basic Lipid Chemistry, Lipids in Food, Lipids in Nutrition; Lipid Raw Material/Lipid Isolation, Lipid Analyses) as well some more specialized lectures given by leading experts in their field (e. g. Lipids in Nutrigenomics, Enzyme Techniques).

The course is primarily targeting PhD students that are in the early part of their PhD studies and employees in the fats and oil industry that wants a broad basic introduction to the field.

Cooperation between academia and industry is one on the primary aims of Nordic Lipidforum, hence, we strive to attract participants from both corporate and academic organizations. During the course, the students also perform a minor project, were PhD students and participants from the industry work together. Anyone that are interested in getting further information about Lipid Forum Academy, or The Nordic Lipid Symposium, which is held in Ålesund from June, 19th to 22th, can contact Jon Aulie (

Munich: The Viktualienmarkt

The Viktualienmarkt is a daily food market and a square in the center of Munich.

The Viktualienmarkt developed from an original farmers' market to a popular market for gourmets. The selection, variety and exclusiveness of the products offered contribute to the market's special flair. On an area covering 22.000m², 140 stalls and shops offer flowers, exotic fruit, game poultry, spices, cheese, fish, juices etc. Nowhere else in Munich can you find a greater variety of fresh food and delicacies.

Most stalls and shops are open during the official opening hours (Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.); but the Biergarten doesn't open until 9 a.m. Many stalls close at 6 p.m., before the standard closing time. There are special opening hours for flower shops, bakeries and restaurants.

In a 2009 New York Times article about meals worth a plane trip across the Atlantic, food critic Mimi Sheraton picked a snack of sausages at the Viktualienmarkt.

The market also hosts a number of traditional and folkloric events such as weighing celebrities, brewers day, gardeners day, opening of the asparagus season, summer festival, dance of the market women on Shrove Tuesday etc. Hence the Viktualienmarkt, which has been a pedestrian zone since November 6, 1975 is also a meeting point and a place to chill.

 Yabited, the Turkish Lipid Group

The Turkish Lipid Group (Yabited) was officially founded and recognized by the Turkish authorities in December 2009. After recognization, the group has started to accept members from universities, industry and government. The executive committee met on 29 May 2010 in Adana. About 55 members attended the meeting and decided to apply for the institutional membership as 12th association within Euro Fed Lipid.

This application has now been formally submitted and will be discussed by the Euro Fed Lipid board on its next meeting. One of the challenging tasks awaiting Yabited is expected to be the hosting of the 11th Euro Fed Lipid congress and 30th ISF lectures series in Antalya/Turkey (27-20 October 2013).
