The Technical University of Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) has established regional offices in key strategic regions in Asia and North America with the aim of enhansing and intensifying the collaboration and communication with partners both at higher education institutions and in industry in these regions. The regional office in Shanghai was established in 2014. It coordinates the strategic partnership between TU Darmstadt and Tongji University. The establishment of a second regional Asia office followed in Tainan in 2019. These two offices act as a central contact point for all partners in the region and provide support for collaboration and cooperation activities between TU Darmstadt and partner institutions in the region. As campus offices, we are thus closely connected to the current academic and research landscape in the region. Furthermore, the regional offices represent TU Darmstadt at conferences, international fairs and networking events. Partner visits and other outreach activities are organized by the offices as well.
The scope of our activities includes the following:
• Establishment and enhancement of support and advisory services for our members to collaborate in research, teaching and knowledge transfer with our local partners
• Development and organization of customized and region-specific marketing and recruiting activities as well as participation in conferences and international education fairs to increase the visibility of the TU Darmstadt and to attract talent
• Establishment of research contacts with local partners and trilateral cooperation with industry
• Development of support programs for international mobility, e.g. development and organization of German language courses with a subject focus
