ITA at the II. Science Conference NRW-Russian Federation
On 16 November 2018 the II. Science Conference NRW-Russian Federation took place at the ZENIT Centre for Innovation and Technology in NRW in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The conference was aimed at experts from Russian and North Rhine-Westphalian universities and research institutions. The aim was to strengthen and expand bilateral cooperation in research and innovation and to initiate joint projects in the fields of digitisation and information technologies, natural sciences and engineering.
Professor. Dr Thomas Gries from ITA was able to contribute valuable impulses to the conference due to his many years of intensive contacts to Russian companies and research institutions and enthused the participants with his interesting practical lecture.
The conference gave an insight into the Russian scientific landscape and showed examples of successful bilateral research cooperations with partners in North Rhine-Westphalia. Experience reports on ongoing projects between North Rhine-Westphalia and the Russian Federation showed how such cooperation works in practice.
