Greek Lipid Forum

Το Ελληνικό Φόρουμ Λιπιδίων, ιδρύθηκε το Δεκέμβριο του 2003 και είναι μέλος του European Federation for the Science and Technology of Lipids (Euro Fed Lipid). Στόχος του είναι να φέρει σε επαφή όλους τους Έλληνες επιστήμονες και τεχνολόγους οι οποίοι δραστηριοποιούνται στον τομέα των Λιπιδίων και να αποτελέσει ένα γόνιμο βήμα διαλόγου και ανταλλαγής απόψεων για την προώθηση της επιστήμης και τεχνολογίας των λιπαρών. 

Η ελαιουργική βιομηχανία αποτελεί έναν από τους σημαντικότερους κλάδους της Ελληνικής βιομηχανίας, και ιδιαίτερα το ελαιόλαδο είναι εθνικό προϊόν υψηλής διατροφικής αξίας που χρειάζεται ευρύτερη διεθνή αναγνώριση και προώθηση. Η επικοινωνία και συνεργασία όλων των ενδιαφερομένων προβάλει τα αποτελέσματα της έρευνας και συμβάλλει στην ανάπτυξη του κλάδου. Η συνεργασία με τη European Federation for the Science and Technology of Lipids συνεισφέρει στην ενημέρωση για τις εξελίξεις στην Ευρώπη, ενώ προβάλλει τα επιτεύγματα των Ελλήνων επιστημόνων στον Ευρωπαϊκό χώρο.

 

 

Eπίσημη Eνημέρωση Από τον Πρόεδρο της EUROFED

 

 

Dear National and regional Societies,

 

It is my pleasure to give you an up-date on Euro Fed Lipid and invite you all to join the 2019 EuroFedLipid congress in Seville October 20th to 23rd.

 

We have received more than 270 abstracts, quite a lot of these at are of high quality.

The scientific program is currently being finalized.

 

We are sure the Seville congress will have a highly attracting scientific program.

 

The number of committed sponsors and exhibitors will ensure that the Seville congress will be conducted on solid financial basis, and we expect to attract a decent number of participants.

 

In order to make the Seville congress also a success for net-working and facilitation of the dialogue between industry and academia, please help us urge both academic and industrial members of your societies to join us.

 

As you know Euro Fed Lipid have been on an unsustainable economic track for the last many years.

 

We believe we have now transitioned to a sustainable path going forward.

 

Key changes have been a dramatic reduction of our cost base:

 

  *   Reduction in back office – most prominent cost saving

  *   Close to no free congress registrations

  *   Close to no funds for participating in meetings

 

We have chosen to change the way we organize meetings and symposia going forward:

 

  *   Our large congress will be held every two years going forward, after Seville 2019 the next congress will be held in Leipzig 2021. We succeeded in postponing the Leipzig meeting originally planned for 2020 to 2021 without extra cost. 
       The Poznan meeting originally planned for 2021 could be cancelled at no extra cost. No venue has been chosen for the 2023 EFL Congress yet.

  *   Having the congress every two years have been a repeated request from scientific committee members, but due to our previous cost base it was necessary to have Congress income every year.
       By having the congress every two years we will save cost for attendees, and we will have a better chance for offering scientific progress from congress to congress.

  *   We aim for having the smaller symposia in the years we do not have the annual congresses so in even years. The next planned symposia will be in 2021 (e.g. Oxidation and anti-oxidants).

 

Our aim is to have 2 t max. 4 symposia every even year, 2022; 2024; 2026 etc.

 

  *   The board will urge all division to consider and start preparation of division specific symposia.

 

Further the EFL board will ask the regional and national societies to plan not to have their meetings close to the timing of the EFL congresses, so preferable larger regional meeting every even year.

 

The transition has come with a significant challenge, we expect these are one time challenges:

 

  *   Especially moving the office in Frankfurt

  *   Moving our web-site to a new provider
 *   Introducing new software solutions for handling abstract submission and congress planning

 The board would like to express its appreciation to an enormous work of Sevim, Diego and Ramón, which contributed to a success of the EFL transformation.

 Kind regards

Hans Christian Holm

President Euro Fed Lipid
