Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter October 2009: From Graz to Munich

Dear Readers,

the election in Germany is over and a new period of  political activity has started and we will realize the difference between “before and after”. Now we are all looking forward to meeting in three weeks in Graz, but preparations for 2010 have already started: From the 21 - 24 November 2010 we will organize the 8th Euro Fed Lipid Congress in Munich and will again experience the high and constant level of scientific work in the field of lipids, oils and fats. This congress will offer you an attractive programme and I’m pleased that my hometown Munich as a leading location for science and technology has been chosen. Besides a fascinating scientific program you can explore Munich and detect like a treasure seeker the cultural and also gastronomic “nuggets” of this town. You can do this on your own account or in form of an organized guided tour. Anyway you should not miss the opportunity to attend.

I invite you (and your partners) cordially, also in the name of our congress chairman Uwe Bornscheuer and the whole team, to attend the Euro Fed Lipid Congress 2010 in Munich and – by the way – this is also an active way to strengthen the Euro Fed Lipid work for the future.

Best regards and see you in Munich

OIls-Fats-Lipids Wiki


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

OFL Wiki

The OFLWiki serves as a collection of data and information about all kinds of Fats, Oils and Lipids. It is made by and for the academic and industrial community of Lipid Science and Technology.

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 (original research). This means that people of all ages and cultural and social backgrounds can write Wiki articles. Most of the articles can be edited by anyone with access to the Internet, simply by clicking the edit this page link. 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
