JSPS Japanese-German Graduate Externship Program joint seminar was held online.
Publishing : March 12, 2021
From March 3 to 5, 2021, a Japan-Germany joint seminar (Yearly school: Energy Systems School II) was held. Last year, we held a joint seminar in Bamberg, Germany, but this time it was held online in response to the global outbreak of the new coronavirus.
Approximately 60 faculty, staff and students from both the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and Nagoya Institute of Technology (NITech) attended the seminar. After the opening remarks by Japanese coordinator Prof. Ken-ichi Kakimoto and German coordinator Prof. Kyle Grant Webber, invited lectures were delivered by Dr. Dai Hisamoto of Hitachi, Ltd. and Dr. Izumi Kano of the NITech Center for Diversity and Inclusion.
Over the course of three days, the program students gave presentations respectively about 12 research projects and four joint promotion projects, and the Q&A session became lively among participants. On the last day, the Young Research Award was awarded to the three students who made excellent research presentations. At the cultural exchange meeting, it was a good opportunity to further deepen understanding among members of both Germany and Japan by watching a self-introduction video created by the program students.
The next joint seminar will be held in Nagoya in March 2022.
