Recap Summer School

Starting from the 9th of July we had the pleasure to host the first edition of a summer school in cooperation with the University of Arkansas. The 15 participants from five different countries stayed in Graz for two weeks and got to learn about different topics in connection with the topic ‘Food Science and Culinary Arts to Maximize Food Quality’. The speakers gave their presentations in the morning sessions (For a detailed program see the event website). After a lunch break the participants got the opportunity to visit a lot of different Styrian companies that either produce or work with food. In the following gallery you can find a few impressions form the event. We are looking forward to the second edition next year at the University of Arkansas.

‘For me it was an outstanding experience to share my passion for food with people from all over the world sharing the same interests. The summer school was well balanced between diverse lectures and excursions, which were very well organized with very interesting speakers from varied disciplines in the food world. It gave me even more sense and ambition to become a part of this fascinating world.’
