Dear Reader,
SFEL, GERLI and DGF have started an initiative to enable the Euro Fed Lipid member associations and the participants of Euro Fed Lipid congresses to come in closer contact.

The Euro Fed Lipid member associations have realized that an increasing number of young researchers do no longer attend the national meetings, but rather decide to present their first results in the European frame.

While this is certainly a good development and a perfect chance to reach a broad audience, it is also weakening the bonds to the national associations and their contributions to the scientific community.

In Antalya, we would like to organize a lunch on Tuesday, 29 October dedicated to the national associations. DGF, GERLI and SFEL will offer designated areas where their members and potential future members can gather and network.

The other member associations have been invited to take part as well in this initative. If you are interested to take part please contact your national association headquarters.

If you are from a country not yet represented within Euro Fed Lipid, but with a potential to join please contact to Euro Fed Lipid headquarters to discuss options to organize a national meeting for you.

    Street Market in Antalya

    If you arrive early in Antalya make sure not to miss the colourful street market, that takes place every sunday on the Perge Boulevard (Perge Bulvarı) in the city center of Antalya (this part of town is called Bahçeli - Gürsu).

    Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells typical of Turkey. There are plenty of herbs, spices, fresh foods, drinks and homemade products to choose from.

    You can also pick up a few souvenirs to take back with you.

    Try your luck at bargaining with the traders - all prices are subject to negociations!

  • Boosted by the fact that it was held in parallel with drinktec, the world´s leading trade show for its sector, oils+fats 2013 achieved an outstanding result. This three-day "International Trade Fair for the Technology and Trade of Oils and Fats" attracted 2,221 visitors, 58% of whom were from outside Germany. In total 110 countries were represented at oils+fats; many visitors traveled a long way, including from the US and Asia. oils+fats has thus consolidated its status as the world´s only business platform for the sector.
