Within the framework of the ERASMUS + project Ag-Lab, during the period from 3 to 7 June 2019, a week of trainings took place at Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences.
The members of the consortium - laboratory specialists, university lecturers, and students of veterinary medicine faculties participated in the trainings.
During the week Ukrainian specialists and students had the opportunity to pass practical trainings in the laboratories of the Faculty of Biology and Animal Science, to learn sensory analysis methods: different tests in evaluation of meat products quality and to get acquainted with the work of various laboratories at the University of Wroclaw.
It should be noted that the trainings were constructed in such a way that participants could not only observe the process of conducting the experiments, but also independently participate in them. The presence of a practical component during the training is just what students and teachers need. For example, during the workshop Dr. Aleksandra Tabis made together with students the detection of adulterations in food using PCR method.
Very interesting were visits to the Epi-Vet Laboratory in Wroclaw at the Clinic of Infectious Diseases and the private accredited laboratory of Agro-Vet. The participants of the training saw modern devices, got acquainted with the specifics of the Polish laboratories, had the opportunity to ask questions to their Polish counterparts and take part in the discussion.
Visiting the official veterinary laboratory in Wroclaw, where research is being carried out for the veterinary inspection, gave the possibility not only to see modern laboratory equipment, but also to learn about the research methodology.
Teachersreceived the new knowledge, went home, and students left for another 3 weeks for practical training. We hope that the experience gained in Wroclaw will be useful to them.
