PhD trip 2008 Canada


Welcome to the Food Microbiology PhD Trip 2008 site.

From June 20 till July 4 2008 a trip to the south eastern part of Canada was scheduled. Toronto, Guelph, Ottawa and Montreal were visited by 16 PhD students and one accompanying professor. The aim of this trip was to gain knowledge about research and applications in the field of food microbiology at an international level. We visited universities, institutes and companies. During the visits we presented our research, got an insight into the Canadian research and there was some time for discussion. Also tours around the companies or universities were part of the program. Additionally, we organized a one day symposium together with the University of Guelph. This trip helped us to build a network of acquaintances with whom we possible can collaborate in the future.

A list of all current participants is available. By clicking on the names of the participants more information about their research topic can be viewed. Also the complete programme is available on this webpage. This PhD trip would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors. Please visit their websites by clicking their logo or name. Furthermore, a report of the trip is published on this website.
