Edgar-Peter Duening and Professor Chu announced the opening of the contest.In early 2014, Tongji and HARTING signed MoU of the cooperation to research and develop innovative and advanced railway technologies. As a part of HARTING Scholarship, this contest was organised by Tongji University Institute of Rail Transit (IRT) and HARTING, aims at inspiring students’ creativity and innovation as well as establishing a platform to integrate theory into practice. The contest opens to all students in Tongji University. HARTING provides full support in respect of technology and samples.
Prof. Lu introduced this contest bases on “Technology Innovation”. Mr. Edgar-Peter Duening also emphasised that the contest establishes a great platform for the students to implement theory into practice.
In order to provide a better understanding of HARTING products and to provide a commercial platform for students, HARTING invited 8 volunteers from Tongji to attend booth duty on the 14th electronica Shanghai exhibition. The volunteers actively participated the 3-day fair. After a briefing on company background and product, the volunteers were able to independently explain the running RFID demo to visitors, which implies students have concrete knowledge in rail and transportation and are able to pick-up HARTING’s product basic operation theory quickly.
