  • Glyco@Alps organized an international workshop "On the future of glycoscience?" during the Global Challenges Science Week on June, 5 and 6.
  • Mini-symposium on Smart Glycomaterials
    on the October 10, 2019
    Glyco@Alps organize, as part of its workpackage 3, a Mini-symposium on Smart Glycomaterials. The aim is to promote exchanges between scientific and industrial peoples, on the subjects of glycosciences and bio-sourced materials.

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.
