Bussines trip to Norwegian University of Life Sciences
From 29th October to 4th November I took a part at the mobility action at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) in Ås, Norway, targeted at meeting with project partners and job shadowing at NMBU within the project “Increased collaboration in research and education of PhD students“. The trip was focused on negotiations with project partners about administration and financial management and discussions about future collaboration with NMBU and NOFIMA AS. The seminar was focused on introduction of all participants, project targets and progress. There was a discussion about financial management of budget chapters and another possibilities to organize other meetings and mobility actions with respect to all project partners’ possibilities.
The responsible employee of NMBU has introduced me the central administrative and financial management of the projects at the university, specified the process of preparation and obtaining new projects and cooperation with international and national partners‘ institutions.

Visit of norwegian company Nofima and NMBU
From December 7th to 20th 2015 I have been visiting Nofima in As, Norway, which is one of the largest research institutes in the fields of fisheries, aquaculture and food research in Europe. During my 2-week stay at Nofima, I could learn the principles of some techniques which are commonly used in the field of molecular biology. I believe this visit was a nice experience for me to learn the techniques that can be used in my PhD thesis. My stay was financially supported by the project: NF-CZ07-ICP-3-185-2015.
