Abstract The European Polysaccharide Network of Excellence (EPNOE) is a research and education network connecting 16 academic and research institutions and a large number of companies with its focus on polysaccharide expertise development and polysaccharide-related research for innovation in business and industry. EPNOE has two main missions in the field of polysaccharide applications in materials, food, and pharmacy/medicine, which are to organise education in polysaccharide science and to perform basic and applied research for the development of new products derived from polysaccharides. In 2009, the EPNOE network prepared a research road map vision to 2020 focussed on polysaccharide use in material structuring, food and health, taking both research and education into consideration. The research road map was prepared from various social, political, industrial and scientific inputs coming from within and outside EPNOE: (1) results of four brain-storming sessions by EPNOE scientists and students, (2) individual contributions of EPNOE scientists and (3) individual contributions of scientists outside EPNOE through an internet review. The result is described in this article.
