15th Euro Fed Lipid Congress
Oil, Fats and Lipids: New Technologies and Applications for a Healthier Life
27-30 August 2017, Uppsala, Sweden
hosted by the Nordic Lipidforum

Dear Colleagues,
Nordic Lipidforum has the great honor to host the 15th Euro Fed Lipid Congress 27-30 August 2017 in Uppsala, Sweden.  

The symposium will take place at the Uppsala Concert & Congress (UKK) located in the very center of Uppsala, within a short walking distance from the train station, all hotels and the historical center of Uppsala.

Some 1,500 years ago Uppsala was the power center of the land of the Swedes and an important place of worship; three viking kings were buried here in the 6th century. When Sweden had been Christianized, Uppsala was made an archbishopric in 1164, and became the religious center of Sweden.

Uppsala developed into a center for trade and learning, and Uppsala University was founded in 1477 as Scandinavia´s first university. World-renowned scientists such as Carl Linnaeus, Anders Celsius and Olof Rudbeck lived and carried out their work here. Sweden's first university hospital was founded in Uppsala already 1708 and is still one of Sweden's biggest hospitals. During the 20th century, 8 Nobel prize winners have been connected with Uppsala University! In its strive to always look for new innovative solutions, Uppsala also got a second University in 1977; The Swedish Agricultural University, SLU.

Uppsala as a university city today offers a vivid cultural environment and extraordinary student life. 50,000 students are seen, heard, and noticed everywhere. World-class research and high quality education pursued here benefit society and business on a global level. Uppsala today is a modern city and also houses several important governmental agencies, such as the National Veterinary Institute (SVA), the Swedish National Food Agency and the Medical Products Agency (MPA). Welcome to spend time in a dynamic setting that hosts a wide range of interesting activities. Although located very close to Stockholm, Uppsala has retained its small town charm, while offering a selection of cultural events, shops, and restaurants worthy a bigger city. An exciting history and unique cultural treasures are literally right around every corner. In Uppsala you visit an environment steeped in both tradition and the latest research.

The theme of the symposium reflects the great importance of oils, fats and lipids for a healthy life through its multiple functions in all aspects of human life and care. The Scientific committee and the Nordic Lipidforum warmly welcome all scientists with an interest in lipids to join the Euro Fed Lipid Congress in Uppsala in August 2017.

Host City Uppsala

Uppsala Uppsala is the fourth largest city of Sweden, after Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. It had 140,454 inhabitants in 2010.

It is located 71 km north of Stockholm, but only 18 min from Stockolm airport (Arlanda)

Since 1164, Uppsala has been the ecclesiastical centre of Sweden, being the seat of the Archbishop of the Church of Sweden. Uppsala is home to Scandinavia's largest cathedral - Uppsala Cathedral. Founded in 1477, Uppsala University is the oldest centre of higher education in Scandinavia.

The Fyris river (Fyrisån) neatly divides the city into two different parts: the historic quarter to the west of the river and the modern administrative, residential and commercial city centre to the east. Most of the historical sights and university buildings are in the western part, with a medieval street layout, river views and parks and dominated by the cathedral.

Ghent 2016: Opening Lecture Konings

Konings The opening lecture by Herman Konings was certainly an inspiring highlight of the Euro Fed Lipid congress in Ghent. The file containing the slides is now available for download at the congress webpage (which has been moved to the Euro Fed Lipid congress archive meanwhile)

Euro Fed Lipid Online Resources and Networks

A fantastic resource is the Euro Fed Lipid congress archive, which contains all past congresses back to 2000.
It answers most questions related to Euro Fed Lipid events.

Facebook Among other things here are a number of pictures taken at different congresses at the Euro Fed Lipid facebook page, another excellent option to stay in contact.
