The 14th CRA-W Vibrational spectroscopy and Chemometrics annual training: again a success!

From October 17 to 21, 2022, the Knowledge and valorisation of agricultural products Department of the CRA-W organised its 14th 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 different working areas especially in agricultural, food and feed research.

At this 2022 session, 22 persons coming from 9 different countries, and different working research institutes, companies and Universities have participated. This year, three invited speakers have participated: Wouter Saeys from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL), Tom Fearn from the University College of London (UCL), and Pierre Dardenne from Spiralys consultance.

The evaluation, performed after this training, has shown that the information provided at the training course matches the participant expectations. Moreover, the participants confirm that most of the information received will be implemented into their experimental work and analytical practices. The participants provided us with a positive evaluation concerning the organization, the competence of the training team to transfer the knowledge, as well as the quality and relevance of provided materials and facilities.  This encourages us to continue with the organization of this training in next years.
