We were hosting Ayano Michibata in our department from August 2018 until March 2019. It was already the second time for us to host Japanese students from the Vulcanus programme. Ayano san has done her own research project provided made a valuable contribution for the group. Besides, we have used her skills in three languages to improve our communication with the contacts in our (Japanese) parent company. As with the previous students, we have greatly improved our understanding of the Japanese culture and we had lots of fun explaining some details of the German aspects of daily life.
For 2019, we have already accepted another student and are looking forward to gaining new insights into the Japanese mind and more valuable contributions to our work. Thanks to all the team at Vulcanus – you’re doing a great job”.
