Festive Ceremony: to be announced

Academic Workshops: to be announced

at Technische Universität Darmstadt

In 2020, Technische Universität Darmstadt and Tongji University, Shanghai, are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their successful partnership. To further strengthen our already close ties, we want to provide all scientists and students interested in the partnership with a forum for interaction and discussion during our Tongji Days.

This occasion will be an opportunity to formulate ideas and plan for the future growth of a key academic relationship.

In consideration of the latest developments regarding the novel coronavirus and the uncertain situation, Tongji University and TU Darmstadt regret to postpone announcing a date for the near future. We hope that we will have the opportunity to celebrate our 40-year partnership within the year 2020.
