Regarding the worldwide situation about the COVID-19, we are sorry to announce that the 22e GFPP / BPGM5 will be postponed.


On behalf of the French Group of Peptides and Proteins (GFPP) and Belgian Peptide Group Meeting (BPGM), we have the great pleasure to invite you to the “Joint Meeting on Peptides and Proteins GFPP22 & BPGM5” organized by the French and Belgian Peptide and Protein Societies from March, 28th to April 2nd 2021.

This event will be held at the Tarbesou Center, Ax 3 Domaines, France. In the heart of the “Pyrénées Ariégeoises” and at an altitude of 1400 m, the Tarbesou Center overlooks the valley of Ax-les-Thermes and offers a panoramic view of the Ariège and the Pyrenees chain. Andorra is 30 km away and Ax-les-Thermes only 7 km.

In line with a long-standing tradition, this meeting is expected to be a great success with approximately 230 participants, bringing together for the first time the Belgian and French communities in the field.

Details of this meeting (scientific program, registration fees, accommodation, etc.) will be soon available on our website.

As a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to display your company’s contribution in the fields of peptides & proteins, reach out to key academic leaders and industrial researchers, enhance your company’s visibility and exhibit your marketing and promotional materials.

We have gathered a rich program of internationally renowned plenary speakers, spanning cutting-edge themes in the peptide and protein science field.

You will appreciate the possibility to participate actively at your convenience through additional actions that will make you even more present in this exciting meeting.

If your company cannot not be represented at the meeting, there is still the opportunity to enclose promotional material into participant packages.

For any enquiry, please contact us here.

Looking forward to seeing you in Ax !
