ZELCOR Summer School
6 juillet - 10 juillet
Bolstered by the success of the 1st Zelcor summer school (Wageningen, 2018), Zelcor consortium offers a second edition on the topic: “Zero waste biorefineries: value chain approach, methods and processes for lignin up-grading”.
This international event organized by INRAE will be held in Versailles (France) from 6th to 10th July. It targets a mixed public of academic and private partners (total of 50 participants) with the objective to favor interactions between scientific research and industry. The programme includes lectures dedicated to the latest advances in plant cell wall knowledge and biorefinery technologies (4 ½ days), lab training on analytical technics or tutorials on sustainability assessment (1 day), visit of a biorefinery site (1 day), and work in group on study cases (2 ½ days).
The last day sessions jointly organized with the Saclay Plant Science summer school will allow all the participants to benefit from the lectures of two invited speakers involved in cellulosic ethanol value chains and to share their poster and project presentations.
The participants will find hotel accommodation at only 10 minute walk or bus from the INRAE site and will have the possibility to meet in Versailles for diner and other activities or even to enjoy evening life in Paris (30 min by train).
Social activities: a gala diner in a Champagne house near Reims and (optional) the visit of the famous Versailles castle on Saturday morning!
