Chitin/Chitosan Webinar Series
The current pandemic situation limits our access to scientific conferences and severely restricts scientific communication and the vital exchange of ideas and accomplishments. The European Chitin Society (EUCHIS), therefore, organizes a new webinar series, intending to provide a platform presenting research on chitin, chitosans, and the broader field of polysaccharide science as they relate to chitin and chitosans.
We hope to foster a steady scientific exchange and to bring the diverse research areas in our sciences closer together.
EUCHIS cordially invites you to join our next Webinar.
How to join: No need to register, simply click on the following link at 11am:
The webinars will take place on the last Tuesday of a month, 11am (CET):
