Workshop and strategy meeting with representatives of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University

Outcomes and plans for the future of a long-standing collaboration: researchers, staff from various fields, as well as the rector of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University visited LUH in early December. The four-day strategy meeting within the scope of the DAAD-funded project “Strategic Partnership” included expert meetings and faculty workshops, as well as a workshop focusing on visiting researchers and collaborations with industry partners. Furthermore, all work groups presented the outcomes of their collaboration between 2013 and 2018, as well as their plans for the future. Professor Volker Epping, President of LUH, and his colleague Professor Andrei Rudskoi discussed the prospects of the collaboration and outlined plans for the 35th anniversary of the collaboration in 2019.
