Taipei Exploration Meeting, Dec 15-16 2011

In 2011, the PIRE-ECCI was obtained additional NSF funding to explore a partnership with IAMS-NTU (Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences, Academia Sinica) in Taipei, Taiwan. The workshop will bring together PIRE-ECCI scientists from the US and Germany with Taiwanese scientists in Taipei, in December, 2011. We expect the outcome will be concrete ideas for joint projects that complement PIRE-ECCI’s existing international research portfolio, and provide even more opportunities for graduate students to experience international research collaboration.

Workshop date: Dec 15-16, 2011

PIRE-ECCI faculty from UC Santa Barbara, the Fritz-Haber Institute (Berlin) and the University of Göttingen will meet with the students and faculty from the Advanced Materials and Surface Science group of IAMS and from National Taiwan University. The workshop will include faculty presentations, a tour of the IAMS/NTU facilities, and discussion time to brainstorm potential collaborative projects.
