The Biochemistry and Biotechnology Group of the Associacio de Quimics de
l'Institut Quimic de Sarria (A-IQS), invites you to participate in the VI
Meeting on Industrial Applications of Enzymes to be held in Barcelona on the
29th and 30th of November 1995.

The conference is an European meeting point for all the people related to the
world of industrial enzymes. Participants from a wide range of fields including
research, marketing and practical applications will gather in Barcelona next
November. The meeting is organized in two independent day-sessions to provide
the opportunity of selecting the topics of your interest. The first day will be
focused on the use of enzymes in the food industry (bakery and flavours) and
the
second day will be directed to the enzymes in textile industry. A poster
session
is also scheduled during the meeting. A proceedings book and technical
documentation from the Sponsors and Collaborating Companies will be
distributed.

The III EUROPEAN A-IQS AWARD ON ENZYME TECHNOLOGY will be delivered during the
meeting.
This award is intended to promote pre-competitive research on innovation of
processess or products involving enzyme technology.

The meeting is sponsored by the main European enzyme producers, which will also
present their last innovations in the industrial applications of enzymes.
