Short summary of the training
The travel to Tromso realized within the project “Deepening of cooperation in bioactive compounds research” was undertaken between April 23rd and April 26th 2017.
On Monday (April 24th) prof. Jana Hajslova, Ph.D. and assoc. prof. Milena Stranska, Ph.D. (University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague) had a meeting with Marek Cuhra, Ph.D. (Institute of Marine Research, Tromso). Possibilities of future collaboration focused mainly on bioprospecting of marine organisms, and utilization of antimicrobial compounds in medical applications were discussed.
The next day (April 25th), prof. Jana Hajslova, Ph.D. and assoc. prof. Milena Stranska, Ph.D. were invited to UiT The Arctic University of Norway, where a common brainstorming seminar focused predominantly on identification of common scientific topics (manly within HORIZON 2020) was organized. The main Norwegian scientists participating on the seminar were prof. Klara Stenswag and prof. Ragnar Olsen (the complete list of participants is available). Additionally to this, also collaboration of both Universities at the educational level (e.g. within ERASMUS program), and creation of common Ph.D. study program, were outlined.
