Jena-Berkeley Partnership

On August 24, IES welcomed Dr. Walter Rosenthal, Chancellor of the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany, to the Berkeley campus. Based on a longstanding partnership between the sister cities of Berkeley and Jena, a fruitful cooperation between the universities has developed over the last two decades. During a meeting with Vice Provost Tsu-Jae Liu, Prof. Eli Yablonovitch and IES Director Jeroen Dewulf, Chancellor Rosenthal and Dr. Claudia Hillinger from Jena's International Office discussed the first results of the Berkeley-Jena Graduate Research Fellowship that is coordinated by IES and new collaboration opportunities between FSU and UC Berkeley.
