Approximately 30 people from the two universities, including President Hideo Ohno, Executive Vice President Toshiya Ueki, and the Dean of the School of Engineering, Tetsuya Nagasaka, participated in the workshop.

At the workshop's opening ceremony, President Hong Hocheng of National Tsing Hua University said, "We have great expectations for cooperation with Tohoku University and hope to deepen exchanges in various fields in the future." President Ohno replied, "I hope that Tohoku University will build partnerships and cooperative relationships with National Tsing Hua University in even more fields. In doing so, we will nurture talented individuals who will serve as a bridge between Taiwan and Japan and who will lead the promotion of further academic endeavors around the world."

In conjunction with the workshop, a signing ceremony was held, at which President Ohno and President Hocheng agreed to renew the cooperative exchange agreement maintained by the two universities.
