Feedback of the bilateral international meeting in Trondheim

on the May 22, 2018

On April 3 and 4, Glyco@Alps delegation was in Trondheim for visiting the very large polysaccharide scientific community of Norway.
On the first day, we had a chance to visit the laboratories of Department of Biotechnology and Food Science and the Department of Physics of Norwegian University of Science and Technology NTNU (https://www.ntnu.edu/)  and also the cellulose pilots of the Research Center RISE-PFI (http://www.rise-pfi.no/).  The NTNU in Trondheim is closely associated with SINTEF (The Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research) which is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia.  

 The second day was devoted to a Glyco mini-symposium organized by Bjørn Christensen  and Berit Løkensgard Strand  for exchanging science between Grenoble and Trondheim.  The Norwegian colleagues presented impressive data in the domain of biology, chemistry, physics and engineering to study polysaccharide biopolymers.  The meeting was extremely productive and further contacts will be established. Two students will participate to the Glyco@Alps Structural Science Summer School, and a joint PhD thesis will be co-funded.
