NU young researchers learn about renewable energy technologies in Japan
In the 11th Renewable Energy 2016 Exhibition approximately 200 companies, research institutes and universities demonstrated their researches and products. The exhibition was visited by more than 25000 people. During the exhibition PhD students of Nazarbayev University presented their research works to visitors and other exhibition participants using the posters, 3D-model and video materials.
During the visits to research institutes and universities (the Fukushima Renewable Energy Institute, the Nihon University, the University of Tsukuba and the Building Research Institute) Nazarbayev University team got acquainted with various research activities and research facilities of distinguished universities and institutions, visited their laboratory facilities, renewable energy demonstration fields, experimental energy efficient houses. At each visiting place PhD candidates of Nazarbayev University presented the activities in which they are involved within their research laboratories and discussed their research projects.
The participation in Renewable Energy Exhibition and the visits to the leading research institutions and universities in Japan provided the NU research team with technological trends in renewable energy sources. The trip was a good platform to share ideas and establish collaboration with academic and industrial partners.
