Forum 2017

In order to contribute to research excellence, long-term collaborations and increased academic mobility between the two countries, in 2017 five research areas were identifed for the first seminar as common challenges for both countries. These challenges were the starting point of the discussions in separate workshops, followed by a general interdisciplinary discussion.
