2010 DAAD Alumni-Seminar

International DAAD-Alumni Summer School “Applied Solar Technology in Developing Countries” held  May 31st – June 08th2010 in Witzenhausen, Germany

In this intensive week, new networks between scientists were established. A joint South–South cooperative proposal writing session was initiated and resulted in a first draft of ideas for a full R&D proposal. In addition future South-North exchange of students and lecturers was planned. Solar food processing was identified important income generating application and as scientific challenging topic. Hence the joint organisation of a solar food conference as side event of the ISES Solar World Congress 2011 is envisaged, where many of the alumni would like to meet again. The cultural program, including a breathtaking visit to a mining company and the cultural evening with international colleagues from the University of Kassel further strengthened the newly created scientific linkages.
