GREEKS GET NEWS OF SCIENCE PLANS

 

Academics from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside have been passing on news of the new science facilities at the Lincoln campus during a visit to Greece.

 

Prof Tony Taylor and Dr Peter Quantick from the Food Research Centre in Grimsby visited an institute in Thessaloniki on behalf of the Greek Ministry of Education to review its new food technology curriculum.

 

The Food Technology and Human and Nutrition Department at the Technological Education Institute has long-standing ties with ULH, with two Greek professors gaining research degrees at Grimsby.

 

A report on the successful visit has been sent to the Greek Ministry of Education. “As a result of our trip two new researchers were recruited and two potential research students will be visiting the Food Research Centre shortly to discuss possible research projects,” said Dr Quantick.

 

The British Council in Greece is supporting the links between the two universities, with staff able to make two or three visits a year.

 

Both academics delivered lectures in different areas of food research to staff and students, and Prof Taylor made a presentation on the university’s exciting new science development at Lincoln, which opens in September.
