"I got to live in the north pole"

Dimitrios Vlasopoulos, Greece
Erasmus: January 2018 – June 2018
IAESTE internship: October 2018 – December 2018.

I started at Luleå University of Technology by doing my diploma thesis via the Erasmus program and then worked on the same project as an IAESTE intern. The project I worked on was about biocatalytic methods of CO2 absorption. My love for biotechnology and the environment made it even more of pleasure working on that project. I also had the chance to learn about different methods and equipment.

The whole experience was fulfilled by the unique chance I got to live in the north pole at -20oC and enjoy the northern lights always accompanied by my new friends.
