TAU’s President Professor Joseph Klafter, and its Rector Professor Yaron Oz both made the journey to LMU for the formal signing of the agreement and inspected various University facilities.

The planned strategic collaboration, which is financed jointly by both institutions, has been officially designated as the LMU-TAU Research Cooperation Program. Its goal is to strengthen cooperation between the partners in all areas of research by undertaking joint projects, organizing scientific workshops and stimulating interaction and exchange between specialists from both universities. LMU has, for example, agreed to establish a Visiting Professorship specifically for faculty from TAU.

“We are very pleased that this forward-looking research program will enable us to expand and intensify the long-standing and successful collaboration between LMU and TAU,” said LMU President Professor Bernd Huber. For his part, TAU’s Professor Oz expressed the view that “the LMU-TAU agreement for joint research is a major step in enhancing the relationship between the universities and scientists of both institutions, and we are all very excited about the future prospects.“

Professor Dieter Lüst of the Faculty of Physics will serve as LMU‘s Coordinator for the LMU-TAU Research Cooperation Program.
