Visit of Biotechnology students from the Silesian University of Technology

The Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Organic Industry, as part of Social Responsibility of Science, organizes classes for students every year at its Branch in Pszczyna.

This year, there have already been two students’ visits, on January 11 and May 23, 2024.

Students of Biotechnology at the Silesian University of Technology during their courses of REACH product registration procedures and Biomonitoring and Ecotoxicology, which visited Łukasiewicz-IPO, had the opportunity to see what research work in laboratories looks like and get acquainted with research systems.

Thanks to the microscopes, they could see small organisms such as Folsomia candida, Hypoaspis aculeifer, Aphidius rhopalosiphi. The students also visited our apiary and a plot with tanks for mesocosm research.

Because of the visits, students acquire basic knowledge about the realities of work at research institute, which is consistent with their field of study, and at the same time obtain information about the possibility of undergoing an internship, as well as employment in the future after graduation.
