In early January, the Department of Roads welcomed a new trainee – a Brazilian student, César Viapian, who is studying Civil Engineering at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul.

César’s training in Brno is organized by INCBAC  within the UNIGOU 2020 program. Within the two-month internship, he will also be involved in research projects in the AdMaS road laboratory. It can be said that César quickly adapted in the laboratory of the center and participated in a number of practical tasks during the first days.

In one of the photographs he is captured with his supervisor, Ing. Pavel Šperka, and with prof. Kudrnou during the production of two-layer test samples simulating asphalt layers at the pumped storage power plant Dlouhé Stráně.
