It was stated that closer cooperation between scientists from Germany and Poland is also an important driver for cooperation between the Berlin region and Wielkopolska. Representatives of Freie Universität Berlin and Adam Mickiewicz University had jointly organized a two-week intensive course on “Nanosized Particles as Building Blocks for Creation of Nanostructures” held in May in Poznan. It was attended by undergraduate and graduate students of the two universities. Other programs will follow. One intention is to set up jointly operated doctoral schools.
