Cooperation over Three Continents – Research Visit from Ethiopia and Texas/USA in BIBA

Sabine Nollmann Öffentlichkeitsarbeit
BIBA - Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik

    The Ethiopian Ministry of Education, with support from Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), established homegrown postgraduate programs in different clusters of Universities of Technology to spread the establishment of Centers of Excellence in different technological and engineering fields. The Texas Tech University (TTU, Lubbock/Texas/USA) runs such a program in collaboration with the Jimma Institute of Technology (JiT, Jimma/Ethiopia). From the 1th of July until the 27th of September 15 doctoral candidates out of this project are guest researchers at the University of Bremen, hosted by BIBA – Bremen Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik.

    During their stay the Ethiopian engineers passed their proposal defense under the supervision of 10 American professors and a representative of the Ethopian Jimma University. In the context of the professional support for their research, the guests will be offered an exciting excursion program. The doctoral candidates visited already the BLG seaport terminal. They will visit further labs and German universities e. g. Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). Additionally, they will take part in guided tours according to their research topics.

    In Bremen the scientists will join a tour to the waste water facilities and a tour to the solid waste management facilities as well as demonstrations of the LogDynamics facilities, AI Lab and the LogDynamics Lab. After their return to Ethiopia, the doctoral candidates can use the acquired expertise for their research work as well as for teaching or to implement it in practice.
