– George Metsios, Department of Sport Science, University of Wolverhampton (UK)

– Nair Honda Kawashita, Instituto de Ciências Exatas e da Terra, Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso (Brazil)

– Liliya Nadolnik, Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (Belarus)

The programme ran from 01/09/2013 to 31/08/2017
