    from August 3, 2020 to August 18, 2020
    The Complex Carbohydrate Research Center’s Hands-On-Training Courses in 2020 will be short virtual online courses. These courses will be given free of charge to participants.
  • The Virtual Structural Glycoscience Summer School took place on June 17th and 18th, 2020. The event gathered 46 participants from all over Europe. The Summer School was co-organized by Glyco@Alps and the SynBIOcarb European network. For the first time the event was online.

The diversity and complexity of sugars : new molecules & materials for innovation

Glyco@Alps explores the fascinating structural diversity and complexity of sugars, including those found in the Alpine biodiversity, and focuses on their exploitation for biopharmaceuticals, medical diagnostics, personalized medicine, materials, environmental sustainability and innovative bio-industries

With the involvement of around 100 scientists of different domains, Glyco@Alps will highlight the University Grenoble Alpes as the first glycoscience center in France. Organization of  international summer schools and scientific meetings will insure visibility at the international level. Glyco@Alps also aims at attracting and training the next generation of glycoscientists, with a pluridisciplinary approach and a broad view to environmental and innovation issues.
