Biogas work placement, Obernzenn, Bavaria, Germany 12th to the 27th April, 2013
When participating in the IBBK Biogas Operators and Engineering course (St Ives, Cambridgeshire, 22-25 January, 2013) I learned of the Leonardo Da Vinci placement opportunities available on biogas companies in Germany. As I am currently unemployed I decided to apply for this placement as it would be a good opportunity for me to learn more about biogas production in Germany as well as to experience German culture and language.
I am very glad to have had the opportunity to participate in the Leonardo Da Vinci biogas placement programme in Germany. I feel I benefited greatly from the experience in a number of ways. Firstly, I gained valuable experience in the day-to-day operation of a biogas plant – something that I intend to put to good use back home. Secondly, I enjoyed very much the cultural aspect of the placement and learned quite a bit about Bavarian culture, cuisine and language. And finally I made good friends while there and will remain in contact with Thorsten Sturm and the Sturm family. I will probably visit Bavaria and the Sturm farm again and have invited Thorsten to come visit me also.
I would not hesitate in recommending this programme to anyone who is potentially interested in participating.
