Paul Falkowski spent a week in China as an Einstein Professor of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
Twenty Einstein Professorships are awarded each year to distinguished international scientists actively working at the frontiers of science and technology, for conducting lecture-tours to China.
The goals of the program are to:
- Strengthen science and technology links, cooperation and exchange between CAS scientists and respective Einstein Professors and their laboratories, and
- Enhance the training of future generations of scientists in China.
Falkowski gave 5 lectures and visited CAS institutes in Tienjin, Yantai and Beijing. He was hosted by Hanzhi Lin, a graduate student in CAS.
