Food Chemistry

PhD Trip

Every two years the PhD fellows of the Laboratory of Food Chemistry of Wageningen University & Research organize an international study tour. In this way we have visited different countries in Europe as well as Singapore, Japan, China and the US.

PhD trip FCH (October 2018)

Every second year the PhD students of our group organise an international PhD study trip. In such a trip we visit companies, research institutes and universities.

The aim of our PhD trip is on the one hand to inform the PhD students about the research and product development carried out by the hosting organizations via presentations, often in combination with a laboratory/factory visit. On the other hand, when of interest to the hosting organization, a number of us can present results obtained in our PhD studies. This could be done by oral presentations and/or a poster session.

Our destinations in 2018 will be Italy and Austria:

October 15th – 19th: Italy

October 22nd – 26th: Austria

For the time being we are in contact with companies and universities to plan our visits. As soon as we have a more definite schedule, it will be uploaded.

To make a trip like this possible, we depend on external financial support as well. Therefore, we would like to thank all contributors that are sponsoring our trip. You can see who is supporting us on this page.
