The 16th Summer Course Glycosciences will take place online on 10, 11, 17 and 18 June 2021. This broad course in glycosciences combines general introductions in the field of carbohydrates and glycoproteins with in-depth sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to focus on specific interests without losing a broad education.
The course is at graduate level. The course is a must for those working in academia, research institutes or industry that want to refresh their knowledge on carbohydrates and for graduate students working on a PhD project related to carbohydrate chemistry, biochemistry, biology, chemical technology or food science. All participants are encouraged to present a poster in one of the online poster sessions in which they introduce themselves and their work.
The course consists of introductory lectures in plenary sessions. In addition many interactive elements are part of the programme (e.g. speed dating, poster sessions etc.) to encourage networking between participants and lecturers.
