The Organizing Committee of

Carbohydrates as Organic Raw Materials V
Building a Sustainable Future

cordially invites all those interested in carbohydrates as raw materials to participate in this Meeting, to be held from 20th to 23rd January 2009 at the Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa.
The first conference on “Carbohydrates as Organic Raw Materials”, organized by Prof. Lichtenthaler and held in Darmstadt (1990), was followed by a series of conferences organized by Prof. Descotes (Lyon, 1992), Prof. van Bekkum and Prof. Voragen (Wageningen, 1994) and the last one by Prof. Praznick (Wien, 1997). After ca. ten years, the relaunch of these conferences is highly important on account of the relevant contribution of carbohydrates for food and pharmaceutical industries, agrochemistry, cosmetics, energy and environment.

This conference will bring together industrials and scientists with expertise in carbohydrates, carbohydrate technologies and biotechnology. The aim of this conference is not only to share the most recent findings but also to stimulate discussions on current trends in the field and to foster new collaborations between academic and industrial partners.
