Spanish trip cements future collaborations

UCLan SENS staff and students teamed up with colleagues from UCLan's School of Psychology for a study visit to Spain.

As part of the European Union's Erasmus+ scheme the group travelled to the Universidad de Extremadura to get a taster of the facilities on campus.

The students toured the Sport and Health Science department, as well taking a look around the food science and sensory laboratories.

The trip also provided first and second year undergraduates with the opportunity to conduct research as part of a study module.

A number of future collaborations are planned, with Spanish students making the return trip to UCLan this summer to work on research projects with Dr Howard Hurst and Dr Jonathan Sinclair, whilst a group from our Nutrition and Exercise Sciences programme are scheduled for a longer visit to Spain during the next academic year.
