UTokyo-IIS and TUDa students enjoy Continental-supported academic exchange program

Prof. Hasegawa and some participants in the academic exchange program

On November 30, 2023, some 25 students from various laboratories gathered around food and drinks at IIS. They all had something in common - the Continental academic exchange program between IIS and Technical University of Darmstadt (TUDa) in Germany. Under the program, the two institutions exchange some research students each year with the financial support from Continental. Since 2018, 12 IIS students and 14 TUDa students have participated in the program.

The IIS students who had already returned from Darmstadt talked fondly about their experience while others who had been selected or were interested in applying to the program eagerly listened and asked various questions, all in an open and friendly environment. Also present were three students who had recently arrived from TUDa under the academic exchange program.

The event was organized by the Office of International and Corporate Relations together with the International Relations Team at IIS, and was hosted by Professor Yosuke Hasegawa, who also spent 2 years in TUDa about 10 years ago under the Overseas Research Fellowship program of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.

The collaboration between IIS and TUDa, which formally started in 2017 with an Agreement on Academic Exchange between the two institutes, continues to grow.
