DECEMBER 7 to 14,2012

The First EUJO-LIMMS WINTER SCHOOL took place from December 7 to 14, 2012. Seven undergraduate students from the University of Tokyo went to Europe and participated in laboratory activities at IMTEK (Germany) and EPFL (Lausanne).

This program was organized and funded by the University of Tokyo which currently promotes hands-on activities and international experiences for UT students in view of broadening its educational programs. EUJO-LIMMS offered a one-week program about international cooperation and science careers. Students from scientific fields, but also from Humanities could attend a program combining an international experience, laboratory activities and introduction to science landscape in Europe.
