On 25th October 2011 the German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo, together with the Center for Nanointegration of the University Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE), University Tsukuba and Tsukuba Innovation Arena (TIA) jointly organized the workshop “Nanomaterials for Energy Applications”. Almost 100 researchers from both countries attended the event.

“With the help of nanotechnology, sustainable and affordable solutions can be developed to meet the increasing global demand for energy,” says Christof Schulz, Director of the CeNIDE Scientific Board. “We are delighted at the DWIH Tokyo initiative of bringing together German and Japanese experts in order to share ideas on possible applications of nano materials in the energy sector. The University of Tsukuba, with its Nanotech Innovation Area, is among the institutions at the forefront of this field.”

On this occasion, the president of Tsukuba University and the vice-president of the University of Duisburg-Essen signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the continuation of their cooperation and exchange. This agreement resulted in a follow-up workshop that was held in Duisburg in July 2012.
