04.07. - 07.07.2018 I RUB Japan Science Days

From July 4 - 7 2018, top researchers, presidents, vice presidents and executives from university management and administration from the University of Tokyo, Osaka University, the University of Tsukuba and RUB meet to promote the fruitful exchange among them. The RUB Japan Science Days will be each devoted to a guiding topic of high societal relevance that offers multi- and transdisciplinary approaches to teaching, research and transfer. This year - honoring a topic that is presently hotly debated in Japan and also in Germany - the Science Days are devoted to "Society 5.0 - Chances and Risks of Digital Transformation and the Responsibility of Universities".

Furthermore, a framework program from the RUB is allocated for the Japanese guests to learn more about science in Bochum and the Ruhr area in general. 

 

Events

Surface Science Crash Course

On Tuesday, June 12th, 2018, a surface scince crash course took place at the RUB for all interested SFB members. Finally, more than 20 people joined the event, in which Prof. Morgenstern and Prof. Muhler from the faculty of chemistry gave an introduction to the basis knowledge about surface science, which is elementary in their research field.
