Dear Reader,

1748 Benjamin Franklin advices a young businessman: "Remember that Time is Money".

Since invention of clocks this proverb sits in our neck and drives us. Industrial nations have imposed us the closest time corset in the world. Under the pressure of performance requirements and controllers - this are the people who are 'stealing' some of the time - our time is more and more concentrated and it creates stress.

You can escape this stress for a few days, away from the constant monitoring and the daily pressure of performance. How? By visiting the Euro Fed Lipid congress in Montpellier. Here you can not only be in a relaxed atmosphere gaining new experiences, such as through the lectures, but also through discussions with colleagues who you usually meet only once a year.

For the period after the congress, we have a solution for you that will help you to gain more time. Visit us at the Table Top Exhibition at the congress - table no. 9 - and let us show you the OilExpert software system. With OilExpert you can shift a large part of the daily lab work on the PC - the time savings is enormous. Information can be obtained in advance following the link http://www.eurofedlipid.org/oilexpert/

We look forward to welcome you in Montpellier in September

Research and Education in Montpellier

Montpellier is a main center of research and education in France. 80.000 of its 400.000 inhabitants are students who have a great influence on the city's appearance.

There are 3 Universities in town:
-University of Montpellier 1: concentrating on medicine, pharmacy, law, sport, business
-Montpellier 2 University: sciences
-Paul Valéry University, Montpellier III: arts, languages and social sciences

These three universities are currently forming a university consortium, which is planned to soon become a single university: the University of Southern France.

In addition, Montpellier is host to no less than seven "Grand Ecoles" in the areas of science and business.

Another gem adding to the reputation of Montpellier as city of science is the CIRAD, a French research centre working with developing countries to tackle international agricultural and development issues.
It is a public industrial and commercial enterprise under the joint authority of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

CIRAD's activities involve the life sciences, social sciences and engineering sciences, applied to agriculture, food and rural territories.

CIRAD has a staff of 1800, including 800 researchers.

Smart Short Course

Independent Pre Congress Event:
13th Practical Short Course: Fundamentals of Edible Oil Refining, Processing and Quality Management
Crowne Plaza Montpellier Corum, Montpellier, France - 13-14 September 2014

As part of the Advanced Oil Processing series, Smart Short Courses joins with the 12th Euro Fed Lipid Conference in Montpellier, France, with the fully updated "Fundamentals of Oil Processing" program. This follows after successful programs in 2013 on Fish Oil (Santiago de Chile), Oilseeds, Oils & Fats (Munich, Germany), Oil Analytical Methods (Antalya, Turkey), Palm Oil (Panama City, Panama) and Best practices (Dubai, U.A.E.)

This 1.5-day short course will bring together industry experts from around the world offering practical information on oilseed and oil processing and quality issues and how to integrate these in downstream products. The program is directed everyone who needs to refresh their Oils and Fats knowledge including new and experienced plant engineers, chemists, technicians, managers, and superintendents.

This is a unique opportunity for new plant personnel and for those who are experienced to meet experts in the field to discuss current problems and learn how to enhance their operations. The course material will also serve as a useful reference for processors, product formulators, chemists and technicians as well as business managers familiar with oils & fats processing, and the production of finished products.
