Shared research interests know no territorial boundaries. Quite the opposite, in fact. For several years now, the Japanese University of Tsukuba has been cooperating closely with the researchers from CENIDE with funding from the DAAD and others. The university is one of the leading Asian institutions in nanoscience. The success of their cooperation is apparent from several Japanese-German scientific publications and a joint patent application in 2014 and 2015. Several workshops also took place in the partner countries and on the Duisburg campus and were attended for the first time by the Taiwanese National Tsing Hua University. 

Current research developments on the time dependence of structural properties at the nanoscale were presented by almost two dozen international experts from the USA, Canada, Japan and the Netherlands at the CENIDE-organized international workshop on “Microstructural Functionality” in the spring of 2014 in Duisburg. 

Internationally renowned scientists are also regularly invited to give lectures with CENIDE members on a variety of topics at the CENIDE Science Talks. Participation in the series is a clear reflection of the intensity of our international ties and cooperation, and over the past two years, we have had the pleasure of welcoming researchers from countries including China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Canada to the talks.
