The 10th anniversary of the CRA-W Vibrational spectroscopy and Chemometrics annual training: again a success!

In March 2017, the Valorisation of Agricultural Products Department of the CRA-W organised the 10th anniversary of its annual training on vibrational spectroscopy and chemometrics. The aim of this annual training is to give an overview of the theoretical and practical issues of both areas for their right application in food control and food research.


17th edition of NIRS course in Cordoba (Spain)

The 17th edition of the course entitled “Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS): Applications in Quality Control and Traceability of Agri-Food Products and Processes", was held at the University of Cordoba (Spain), February 6th-9th. The course, was designed for pre and post graduate students, scientists and professionals with different backgrounds (analytical chemistry, soils science, animal nutrition, biology, environmental sciences forestry, agriculture and chemical engineering, etc).

This edition there were 18 attendees from Spain, Colombia and Mexico (see attached photo group). Unlike other NIRS courses, it is taught entirely in Spanish, to give researchers and professionals from Latin America the opportunity to perform the training in their mother tongue. Don´t miss the opportunity to be one of our students!

As the number of applications were three times the available places in the course, the University of Cordoba will organize a new edition in May 2017.
