Training in vibrational spectroscopy and chemometrics

For the 10th consecutive year, the CRA-W organises a complete training on vibrational spectroscopy and chemometrics. In this 10th anniversary training you will have a complete overview of the theory of the spectroscopic and chemometric methods most commonly used. This will be completed with dynamical practical sessions in multidisciplinary laboratories, which will give you some tips and tricks useful when dealing with spectroscopy and chemometrics.



We look forward to see you in Copenhagen from June 11th  to 15th June 2017

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.
