Proton International

Dear reader,

Welcome to the website of Proton International! Proton International is a committee consisting of 7 students who organize an annual study trip for chemistry and molecular life science students of Utrecht University. During this trip the participants can discover chemistry in another country, showing them possibilities to study or even work abroad. 

In the past years, we went to Canada and Sweden and in April 2022 we travelled with a group of 32 students to Switzerland. Many universities and companies in Zurich and Geneva opened their doors to us and enabled us to discover the chemistry and culture over there. We have met many interesting researchers and students who enthusiastically told us about their research, showed us around their laboratories and answered our eager questions about life in Switzerland. 

This coming year, we hope to be able to organise an amazing trip for Proton International 2023 to Singapore!

Before you leave this page, take a look around this website! We’ll keep you up to date about our preparations, and show pictures of the trips of last years, the program and sponsors. 

If there are any questions, we can always be contacted with the contact information below. 

On behalf of Proton International 2023,

Kind regards,

Minka Snoek
