All research and application topics related to polysaccharides are within the focus of EPNOE 2013.
The International Scientific Committee has particularly identified the following aspects:

  1. Polysaccharide isolation and characterization (algae, new crops and plants, by-products, wastes, other sources…)
  2. Biosynthesis of polysaccharides
  3. Biodegradation of polysaccharides (mechanisms, products determination, efficiency), enzymology
  4. Chemical modification of polysaccharides
  5. Advanced physical, chemical, structural, and surface characterisation of polysaccharides
  6. Nanotechnology: nano and micro- polysaccharide-based objects (production, characterisation, use)
  7. Biomimetic applications of polysaccharides
  8. Development of fuels based on polysaccharides
  9. Polysaccharides as food ingredients
  10. Polysaccharides for biomedical applications
  11. Polysaccharide-based materials including films, fibers and composites
  12. Bioplastics
  13. Pulp and paper
  14. Life Cycle Assessments- Environmental concerns –Policy – Social aspects
