The MIT Germany programme, a cooperation between FAU and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), promotes joint projects in research and teaching. One of these projects is the Global Teaching Labs. In these labs, MIT students hope to inspire school pupils with enthusiasm for STEM subjects. Phoebe Li and Kenny Derek from MIT visited FAU in January and taught pupils at Ohm Gymnasium in Erlangen.

A great success for FAU: Engineer Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Marion Merklein has been elected to the Senate of the German Research Foundation (DFG). The members of the Senate advise and decide on all important affairs of the DFG. The DFG itself is the largest organisation for funding research in Germany, and also has a key role in promoting the self-governance of science and research.
