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 the possibilities to study or even work abroad.
The past years we went to Bologna and Milan, Toronto and last April we travelled with a group of 26 students to Sweden for the 2019 edition of Proton International. Many universities and companies in Stockholm and Uppsala opened their doors for 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 Sweden.
This year we will be paying a visit to the United States, we will be going to New York in April! The committee has already started preparing, so hopefully around this time of year in 2020 we are able to look back on another great trip.
Before you leave this page, take a look around on this website! We’ll keep you up to date about our preparations, give you hints for the possible destination 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.
