Upscaling glycosciences: from the test tube to the eco-innovating industry

on the November 9, 2018

From 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Glyco@Alps is organizing a symposium about: Upscaling glycosciences: from the test tube to the eco-innovating industry. It will be held on November 9th at Grenoble in the School of Industrial Engineering, Grenoble INP.
Glyco@Alps invites you to its conference about the upscaling of glyco-sciences in relation to environmental impact assessement during the life cycle of products and processes. The issue of scale changing from the lab to the industry is a hot topic for which answers still need to be found. Through the examples of glyco-based sectors (algae, pharmaceutics, materials, etc.), this question will be discussed by researchers and industrials.
Confirmed participants include CEA, Sanofi, Cargill, UTT.

Key words: life cycle, upscaling, environmental impacts.

Online Registration is free and mandadory.
