Handl Tyrol merit scholarship 2023

Three MCI students receive the Handl Tyrol merit Scholarship and visit the company in Pians

Off to Pians in the Tyrolean Oberland: Natalie Gartner (Bachelor Bio- & Food Technology), Lisa Bertolini (Bachelor Bio- & Food Technology) and Hannah Wunsch (Master Food Technology & Nutrition) applied for the Handl Tyrol Merit Scholarship 2022 and received € 500 (Bachelor) and € 1,000 (Master). They were also invited to Pians together with MCI staff to visit the company and meet Managing Director Karl Christian Handl.

As we entered the site, we were already welcomed by a large screen announcing our visit and welcoming the MCI. Christian Handl (CEO), Josef Amprosi (Plant Manager), Carmen Geiger (R&D) and Gerhard Kreiseder (Head of Human Resources) officially welcomed us and took us on a guided tour of the plant, followed by a get-together for an exchange of ideas over regional snacks. We want to thank Handl Tyrol once again for this exciting, interesting and tasty morning.
