Scientific Divisions

To allow a better communication between the specialists among the members, Euro Fed Lipid has set up divisons on certain topics within the fields of Lipids, Fats and Oils.

Co-operation is open to every Euro Fed Lipid member. Divisons will organise special symposia on their topic and publish statements. They counsel the Euro Fed Lipid board and are a pool of expertise for the public and the press.

Members who wish to join a divison are requested to contact the headquarters at
