This map highlights the wealth of expertise in each of the 3 Enabling Technology Areas across Europe. Click on the pins to view centres of expertise, facilities and capabilities and how to access them. Our aim is to foster collaboration between scientists of diverse background focussing on carbohydrate and metrology. The map also highlights commercial suppliers (look out for the blue pin) of carbohydrates with a catalogue of more than 500 standards available.

This will be regularly updated over the lifetime of CarboMet and it is anticipated that this will be a collective resource for all to reference and contribute to.
