Students trip to Esitpa: Ecole d’ingenieurs en Agriculture, Rouen

In October the BRIDGE project enabled us to support students from the University of Brighton to travel to Rouen for 5 days. This was  an opportunity for knowledge exchange with students from Esitpa. Hosted by William Edmonds and Nathalie Roguez-Villette , students discussed the meaning of sustainability from their different perspectives, visited agromaterials workshops and the school of architecture. They were introduced to sophisticated materials testing methods in the Esitpa labs and attended a lecture by a sustainable materials, technology & design business about flax and bio-plastics. They have returned with samples of agromaterials and are interested in exploring potential applications in their design work. Ideas include exploring the potential for biodegradable materials to  reduce lifespans in certain contexts.
