Benelux Metabolomics Days 2018


On September 19 & 20, 2018 the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre will organise the Benelux Metabolomics Days 2018 to bring together the Metabolomics community in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. You can register here.

The meeting will be held in the Engels Conference Center in Rotterdam, which is conveniently situated next to the Rotterdam Central Station with direct train connections to Belgium and all major cities in the Netherlands as well as Schiphol airport. The meeting is in English.

Scientific programme

The 2-day meeting will feature lectures by invited speakers, presentations selected via abstract submission, networking breaks, a conference dinner and poster sessions. We are regularly updating the programme with the latest confirmed speakers.

The conference will focus on the latest developments in metabolomics technologies and the applications thereof in biomedical, nutrition, agri and food, industrial biotech.

Abstract submission

You can submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation in the programme. Find more information here. We encourage all MSc and PhD students to bring a poster of their work. 

--> Abstract submission deadline oral presentations: July 15th!
