For twenty years, PhD students of the Division of Human Nutrition at Wageningen University have the tradition to organize international study tours. The tenth study tour will take place in October 2013 and includes symposia and workshops at various universities, institutes and companies in Australia. This international tour is part of the PhD program and is an opportunity to exchange knowledge and stimulate collaboration with other nutrition institutes through interaction on the scientific, social and cultural level.

Previous years, PhD students from our department went on study tours to Germany and Switzerland (1991), United Kingdom (1993), United States (1995 and 2007), Scandinavia (1997), South Africa (1999), Germany, Switzerland and Italy (2001), Australia (2003), UK and Ireland (2005), Scandinavia (2009), and South West USA and Mexico (2011).

We are part of the Graduate School VLAG. Advanced education is an important part of the scientific training they stand for. Apart from attending courses and congresses this international study tour is organized every other year to contribute to our scientific training.

We are looking forward to an inspiring and educative trip.
