The 7th European Cyclodextrin Conference was held successfully on Sep. 5-8 in Budapest with 190 registered participants from 24 countries.: from Hungary (61), Italy (20), Spain (11), US (10), etc. The event was dedicated to Prof. József Szejtli (would be 90 this year), the Hungarian scientist who played determining role in development of cyclodextrins. His life and main achievements in cyclodextrin chemistry and applications were

The conference followed the traditions with 9 oral sessions each starting with a keynote lecture and altogether 40 oral and 18 short presentations. Two poster sessions gave the possibility to discuss with the presenters of the 68 posters.

The best poster prize according to the decision of the jury was awarded to Andrea Nehr-Majoros, University of Pécs, Hungary (P-37 Cyclodextrin derivatives inhibit Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 1 and Ankyrin 1 receptor activation in vitro).

The best poster audience prize according to the votes of the attendants was given to Ruiqi Jing, Aalborg University, Denmark (P-08 Supramolecular Modular Self-healing, Shear thinning, and UV-Curable Dextran Hydrogels).

The winner of the best short presentation prize was Zeinab Dirany, University of Navarra, Spain (S-11 Formulations of Miltefosine Using Cyclodextrins and Polymeric Surfactants: Structural Characterization and Application Against Leishmaniasis).

The organizer, CycloLab is greatful for the financial support to Ligand and Beren (Platinum sponsors), Wacker Chemie (Silver sposor) and the other partners: Richter Pharm., Debrecen University, Cyclodextrin Society, Japan, Unicamk Hungary and MDPI.

The participants of the EuroCD2023 have the possibility to publish their presentations in the Special Issue “A Commemorative Issue in Honor of József Szejtli: Advances in Cyclodextrin Chemistry and Its Applications organized by the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal providing an advanced forum for biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, molecular biophysics, molecular medicine, and all aspects of molecular research in chemistry. It has an impact factor of 6.208 and is ranked JCR – Q1 in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. IJMS has offered a special publication fee: a 450 CHF discount for all the participants of the EuroCD2023 conference.

The International Advisory Board of the European Cyclodextrin Society decided on the venues of the next conferences: 2025 Milan (Andrea Mele) and 2027 Prague (Jindrich Jindrich).
