On October 21, Prof. Johannes Froehlich, the Vice Rector of Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), Dr. Iris Mach, the Head of Japan Austria Science Exchange Center (JASEC), and Mr. Thomas Rief, the Deputy Head of JASEC paid a courtesy visit on Dr. Yasushi Nishimura, the President of OIT.
After making the agreement to collaborate on the research and education with TU Wien in 2013, we have boosted the interaction through the exchange of students and researchers.
In the meeting, we mainly discussed the hosting environment for exchange students on both sides and future collaboration. Prof. Froehlich showed interest in many of OIT research centers such as the Robotics & Design Center located at Umeda Campus and the Visualization Software Developing Center at Hirakata Campus, and expressed his intension to accelerate our academic interaction in many fields.
It is expected that this visit will trigger the further academic collaborations with TU Wien.
