CarboMet - Metrology of Carbohydrates for Enabling European BioIndustries

Metrology of Carbohydrates for Enabling European BioIndustries


Carbohydrates constitute the largest source of biomass on Earth and their exploitation will be crucial if we are to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and create a Circular Economy. However, to understand and ultimately exploit carbohydrates, a carbohydrate metrology and measurements ‘toolbox’ is essential for new research and innovation practices in glycoscience.

CarboMet will facilitate engagement between key players and stakeholders of the glycoscience community across Europe to identify the current state of the art and in particular future innovation and technological challenges in carbohydrate metrology. LEARN MORE


Groups within the CSA will work in parallel on 3 Enabling Technology Areas:


In addition, 4 BioIndustry Sectors have been identified as of immediate interest for CarboMet where the exploitation of carbohydrates will have huge impact:
