Research Exchange Forum 2016
The Research Exchange Forum took place on the 6th of October. It's main function was to help integrate scholars, new to the University of Duisburg-Essen, into the research community.
This semester we welcomed a new DFG funded doctoral fellow, Jiajia Ma, and 5 visiting scholars (Wang Chao, Central China Normal University; Tianyu Jiang, Renmin University of China; Junhua Meng, Nankai University; Prof. Sun Bo, Harbin University of Commerce; Dr Alessandra Cappelletti, The American University of Rome) to IN-EAST. In order to integrate them into our research environment the Research Training Group 1613/2 “Risk and East Asia” organized a research exchange forum on the 6th October 2016.
After an introduction to the structure of IN-EAST by Prof. Flemming Christiansen (speaker of the Research Training Group) and Helmut Demes (managing director IN-EAST), the scholars presented their research. Their ideas were commented on by the audience that comprised of PhD students from a variety of chairs. It is hoped that our visitors find these comments useful and are able to apply them to their work and that new collaborations have been forged between researchers with similar interests.
An informal lunch was hosted at Lindenwirtin, a traditional German restaurant in Duisburg. Later in the afternoon the visitors were taken on a tour of Zeche Zollverein in Essen, introducing them to the culture of the Ruhr Gebiet.
