Tohoku University and Harvard University have extended their academic exchange agreement for another year.
President Susumu Satomi and Vice Provost Richard McCullough renewed the deal at a signing ceremony at Harvard on May 22.
Since its inception in July 2010, the agreement has led to many research exchanges between the two universities, as well as academic advancements, primarily in the fields of Materials Science and Nanotechnology.
After the 2011 Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and the tsunami that followed, Tohoku University and Harvard University also developed a joint project to archive information on the disaster and conduct study tours of disaster-stricken areas.
On the sidelines of the signing ceremony, a workshop on "Frontiers in Quantum Materials and Devices" was held for participants from both universities to share updates of their research. Motoko Kotani, the director of the Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR), unveiled the latest results of the unique research currently underway at Tohoku University, that fuses materials science and mathematics.
