 今回は、ベルリンではZALFという研究所に、ミュンヘンでは、Environmental Health(環境健康)研究所というところを訪問してきました。ZALFでは、土地の利用法などに関する研究について、Environmental Health研究所では微生物研究について、情報交換してきました。同時に、学生交流の可能性について、議論をすることができ、たくさんの収穫がありました。

   Oversea trips continue and I have been to Germany this time. I visited a couple of research institutes, using a fund coming from my University to promote collaborations with oversea research institutes.
   For Japanese Universities, collaborations with overseas are very important but it is very hard to discuss and determine how we collaborate, making sure there are mutual benefits.
   In my image, European research institutes are collaborating with other institutes, in very efficient ways. They gave me a lot of ideas for more collaborations. Also, administration systems in these institutes are very efficient and I am jealous on all of these.
   English levels of the students there are high thus students can be exchanged very effectively as well.
   This time, I visited an institute called ZALF in Germany, and The Research Institute for Environmental Health in Munich. At ZALF, we discussed on the effective land use and at The Research Institute for Environmental Health, we discussed on microbiology.
   I also caught up with Isabell, who I supervised during her masters degree. She was almost finishing her Ph.D. when I visited her and I sincerely thank her for showing me around Germany.
