LMU extends agreement with Tokyo

Munich, 10/05/2012

At a meeting in Tokyo, the President of LMU Munich, Professor Bernd Huber, and the President of Tokyo University (Todai), Professor Junichi Hamada, have agreed to extend for a further 5 years the cooperation agreement signed by the two institutions in 2007. The LMU-Todai Cooperation in the Sciences forms part of LMU’s Institutional Strategy LMUexcellent, and is designed to stimulate further collaborative ventures in research, in particular in the Natural Sciences.

“We wish to intensify further what has been for us a strategically important and very successful collaboration,” said President Huber. “Todai is one of the most distinguished universities in the world, and this enables us to work together on state-of-the-art projects.”

Under the terms of the agreement, the two universities commit themselves to promoting the exchange of research personnel and improving career development programs for young scientists, focusing particularly on physics, chemistry and biology.
