A Russian delegation from the Ural Federal University (UrFU) visited KIT from June 30 to July 1 on the invitation of Prof. Dr. Heinz Wörn, Head of Intelligent Process Control and Robotics research lab at the Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics. Previous joint projects between UrFU and KIT have been focused on industrial and service robotics. This time, the visit was aimed to extend the existing partnership on new subjects and bring it to a new level. Professors from the fields of information science, nanotechnology, biology and botany visited different institutes and research laboratories of KIT to explore potentials for joint projects. The meeting was a fruitful one and came out with an agreement to initiate closer cooperation between UrFU and KIT. At the end of the visit, Prof. Dr. Volker Saile, Head of Division Physics and Mathematics of KIT, and Prof. Dr. Vladimir Kruzhaev, Vice-Rector of UrFU, signed a Letter of Intent on Academic and Scientific Cooperation between both institutions.
