The Norwegian R&D institute SINTEF Ocean, recently launched their new Centre for bioprocessing and Ingredients Research in Trondheim. Board member at Nordic Lipidforum and Quality Director at Lysi (ISL), Arnar Haldorsson, was among the invited speakers at the opening seminar.
This is part of a systematic, long term strategy and initiative which SINTEF has worked on for many years already. SINTEFs goal is to provide the lipid industry with high competance, process- and pilot plant facilites, and analytical support, that will give rise to study more thoroughly new products and smarter process solutions.
The board has already startet planning the next Nordic Lipidforum Symposium 2019. We wish all Lipidiforum members warmly welcome to the 30th Nordic Lipidforum Symposium 2019, at the Bygholm Park in Horsnes, Denmark, 13 – 15 June 2019. Save the dates!
The Nordic Lipidforum Young Scientist Award 2017 were this year awarded Elina Zailer from University of Würzburg, Marika Kalpio at University of Turku, and Ken Cheng from Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet. The diploma was given to the awardees during the Nordic Lipidforum Symposium and EFL Congress dinner at Uppsala Castle.
12 participants attended the 5th Nordic Lipidforum Academy 2017, prior to the Symposium and the EFL Congress. The Academy was held at Biomedicinske Centrum at Uppsala University. The Lipidforum Academy has now been established as a tradition, and attendees both from industry and PhD-students from several universities from all over Europe, spend five days with lectures and project works. Hopefully the 6th Nordic Lipidforum Academy will take place prior to the 30th Nordic Lipidforum Symposium 2019 in Horsnes, Denmark!
The Nordic Lipidforum wish to thanks especially our local organiser, Dr. Kumari Ubhayasekera!

Our goal in Nordic Lipidforum is to be relevant for our members. We want to promote applied research and technology, be a contact network, provide information about network playground for Nordic and international meetings, to inspire talented employees to increase their competence in lipid science and development, and much more. This is only possible with active members that share news and relevant activities. If you want to share something you believe is of importance, do not hasitate to contact secretary or members of the board.
The Nordic Lipidforum is now present at LinkedIn, so sign up the group today.
We are a small «lipid family» in the Nordic countries. Everyone knows everyone. Almost. The number of members in Nordic Lipidforum has been relatively stable for years, but with a slight decline. In time of globalisation, we are happy to see that our presence also is taken notice of outside the Nordic countries. We have now members from Peru as well!
If you know someone, either a colleague or two, a friend or professional contact, that might be interested in joining the Nordic Lipidforum, just ask them to sign up. You will find information about membership fee and an online application form here.
We hereby request all members to pass forward our website to people they believe might be interested in, and advantage of joining Nordic Lipidforum. Let us set a goal of 50 more members by the end of 2016!
