A German delegation consisting of seven people from German Institute of Industry 4.0 and a local university visited a Taicang vocational school on Nov 13.

The memorandum states that the two sides are expected to carry out academic and technological research activities in the next three years, including exchanges between teachers, researchers and students, setting up joint courses and joint training projects.

Wei Xiaofeng, president of the Chien-shiung Institute of Technology, introduced the school's basic situation to the German guests.

He said that the cooperation with German Institute of Industry 4.0 intends to establish the most advanced training center for Industry 4.0 around the world and he hopes that in the future his institute is able to become Germany's technology transfer center in the Far East.

Manager of the Germany Academy of Industry 4.0 said that as the representative of the German Institute of Industry 4.0, she will try her best to help the two sides learn more about each other and establish a cooperation and exchange platform for them.
