150 Jahre Freundschaft Deutschland-Japan

Date: November 9th, 2011 10:00-17:00
Venue: Tokyo International Forum (Yurakucho)
Participation: free of charge, Pre-registration required

On the 10th anniversary of Fraunhofer Representative Office Japan, we hold a Fraunhofer symposium „Green Technology made in Germany – Efficient Use of Energy and Resources“. The president of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Hans-Jörg Bullinger will visit Japan and give a speech about the Fraunhofer research on Green Technology, which brings environmental and economical profit. Furthermore, five Fraunhofer Institutes introduce their applied technologies in- and outside of Germany for the efficient use of energy and resources from different points of view, such as generation, storage and usage of energy and methods of the efficient use of limited sources and materials. Through this symposium we would like to contribute our experiences in Germany to Japan.
