The Wageningen UR Lignin Platform organizes a dedicated satellite Workshop linked to the BPM (Biobased Peformance Materials) Symposium. The BPM Symposium will be held on June 15-16 2016, the Lignin Platform Workshop (LPW) will be held on June 17th 2016, both in the Hof van Wageningen Congress Centre.
The satellite workshop main topics will be the chemical, biological and bio-catalytic conversion of lignin to novel biobased materials and chemicals with a session devoted to setting up strategic alliances for collaboration. Participants from industry and academia are expected.
The registration fee is €100. An invoice will be sent to you upon registration. Please register here.
We hope to welcome you in Wageningen on June 17th and possibly on the preceding BPM Symposium on June 16th. Register now or contact us if you have any further questions related to the programme, location or accommodation.
