JSPS Japanese-German Graduate Externship Program joint seminar was held online
Publishing : March 9, 2022
On March 1 and 2, 2022, a Japan-Germany joint seminar (Yearly school: Energy Systems School Ⅲ) was held. Like last year, it was held online in response to the global outbreak of the COVID-19. 75 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 German coordinator Prof. Kyle Grant Webber and Japanese coordinator Prof. Ken-ichi Kakimoto, invited lectures were delivered by Prof. Kei Maeda from Tokyo University of Science, Japan and Prof. Hana Uršič from Jozef Stefan Institut, Slovenia.
Over the course of two 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. Even though the second consecutive year of online events, it was a good opportunity to further deepen understanding among members of both Germany and Japan.
The next joint seminar will be held in Nagoya in March 2023.
