The European Chitin Society offers a new webinar series

The European Chitin Society (EUCHIS) is a non-profit organization, whose objective is to encourage basic and applied scientific studies of all aspects of chitin, including chitosan, derivatives of chitin and chitosan, and related enzymes. To stay virtually connected in times of social distancing, the European chitin society starts an interesting webinar series about current chitin and chitosan related research topics.
