On 16.01.2020 the Institute for Factory Automation and Production Systems invited its former and active employees as well as cooperation partners from research and industry to the Merks Motor Museum in Nuremberg for the FAPS Academic Award Night (FAAN).

The event started with a visit of the museum combined with a scientific poster session in which a variety of exciting cooperation projects were presented. Afterwards, two of our international doctoral students, Reijiro Kuzuhara und Mehari Kumilachew Bezuneh, gave an impressive insight into engineering education and teaching in Japan and Ethiopia.
