PhD trip 2010 Switzerland

Welcome to the Food Microbiology PhD Trip 2010 site
From October 24th to November 4th, 2010, a study trip to Switzerland is scheduled as the coming event of a series of PhD trips, Food Microbiology Laboratory in Wageningen University. Every two years, PhD candidates organize an academic trip by ourselves. This time, Basel, Lausanne, Geneva, Zurich and other cities will be visited by us and our chair Prof. M. H. Zwietering. The general aim is to gain knowledge about research and applications in the field of food microbiology at an international level. We will visit universities, institutes and companies, present our research and obtain  an insight into relevant research in Switzerlands. Additionally tours and social activities around the companies or universities will also be  part of the program. We are expecting the coming trip will help us to build a network of acquaintances with whom we  can possibly collaborate in the future.

Your support and sponsorship to us will lead to extended fame of your company and brands. We will broadcast it in all of our presentation slides, reports and websites. We will appreciate your offer.

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.
