Minister Reinhold Jost (Saarland, Germany) and the OPTIWIM Project group visited GMIT

GMIT campus (Nalaikh district), 09.03.2019 A German delegation headed by Saarland’s Environmental Minister Reinhold Jost, and Prof. Mathias Bauer (CBM GmbH) visited the GMIT campus on 9th of March, 2019.

     They were accompanied by German industry representatives, and Johannes Schneider, Head of Development Cooperation to the Embassy of Germany.

       GMIT rector, Dr. Dorjderem, introduced the vision of GMIT and its comprehensive activities. Furthermore, he emphasized the importance to expand the scope of research as well as student internships in order to strengthen practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

     Minister Jost was deeply impressed by GMIT students, staff and infrastructure. He encouraged the GMIT students to get in touch with industrial, mining and business organizations of Saarland – especially for obtaining internships. Saarland is a region in the south-west of Germany near the French border with a high level of heavy industry and mining. Although, Saarland is a small German county, it’s offering huge potentials for professional cooperation in post-mining rehabilitation processes, porcelain manufacturing, and waste recycling.

     Due to his second official visit at GMIT, Minister Jost stated: "Four years ago, I presented the mineral and stone collection to this university. This was not only a gift – it was trust in future cooperations too. GMIT developed into a very dynamic university within a very short time. Let’s work together.”
