Students from the Czech Republic have visited Heriot-Watt University as part of its new 'Study Stays Abroad' programme.
This project involves students from two institutions in the Czech Republic: Charles University in Prague and Biologicke Centrum AV in Ceske.
Over two weeks in June, two groups of eight students from each institution spent time at Heriot-Watt University's Edinburgh Campus for a training programme focused on 'Best Practice in Research Commercialisation'.
The programme was made up of case studies presented by Heriot-Watt staff, including Dr Olga Kozlova and Robert Goodfellow, both from the University's Research & Enterprise Services, and a few selected external partners, including Dr Patrick McCarthy (Genecom Bio Ltd) and Dr Colin Robertson (Nexxus Scotland).
The visitors came from a variety of academic fields that included medicine, biology and engineering.
Both institutions will again send groups at the same time next year.
