Based on the Erasmus+, Prof. Ensar Gül, Dean of College of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Istanbul Sehir University and 3 administrative officers of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal, Ms. Raquel Martinho, Célia Janota, Carlotta Pisano visited Faculty of Engineering, Yamaguchi University from the 3rd of July for a week.

On the first day, they gave a courtesy call on Prof. Shinji, Dean of Faculty of Engineering. They introduced their universities and exchanged their opinion about the future relationship among the parties.

Then they moved to Yoshida Campus, which is the main campus of Yamaguchi University located in Yamaguchi City, and met Vice President (International Cooperation) Miura and visited the facilities in the campus. They also visited Prof. Shigyo and LED irradiation optimized for plant growth facilities and learned the Shigyo Method for Cultivation. After that, they visited Main Library.

Furthermore, Prof. Ensar Gül gave a lecture on "Design Patterns" in English. Audiences are students of Intelligent Systems and Media Engineering Course and Information Systems Engineering Course, Division of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering, Graduate School of Sciences and Technology for Innovation, who were all ears and worked hard in the lecture.

In addition, they interacted with both academic and administrative staff, our student, and enjoyed experiencing calligraphy and the tea ceremony with international students.

Through Erasmus+, we expect our further continuous relationship each other and promoting globalization on research and education in the future.

Based on the Erasmus+, Assistant Professor Pedro Cabral of Information Management School, Paulo Costa, an administrative officer of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal, visited Faculty of Engineering, Yamaguchi University from the 29th May for a week.

On the first day, they gave a courtesy call on Prof. Shinji, Dean of Faculty of Engineering. They introduced their universities and exchanged their opinion about the future relationship between 2 parties on Erasmus+.

Then they moved to Yoshida Campus, which is the main campus of Yamaguchi University located in Yamaguchi City, and met Advisor to the Vice President Tomimoto who is in charge of International Cooperation Affairs, and visited the facilities in the campus.

Furthermore, Prof. Cabral gave a lecture on "Geographical Information Science and Technology: Applications to coastal hazards" in English. Audiences are students of Information Systems Engineering Course, Division of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering, Graduate School of Sciences and Technology for Innovation, who were all ears and worked hard in the lecture.

In addition, they interacted with both academic and administrative staffs, our students, and international students and observed lectures conducted in English.

We have accepted 5 students and academic and administrative staffs from the university so far, and another visiting plan will be achieved this July. We expect our further continuous relationship each other in the future.

Professor Shuichi Yamamoto of the Graduate School of Sciences and Technology for Innovation (Engineering) (Director of YUBEC*) has been awarded the SCEJ Award for Outstanding Research Achievement (Kamesaburo Ikeda Memorial Award). He received the award at the SCEJ 82nd Annual Meeting and gave the award lecture titled "Studies on Biochromatography Separation Engineering" on Monday, March 6, at Toyosu Campus, Shibaura Institute of Technology.

The award is granted to individuals who have conducted outstanding research pertaining to chemical engineering and have built up a track record of comprehensively distinguished achievements in the academic field. Professor Yamamoto has developed original models that took into account both the transport phenomena and the recognition of biological molecules in chromatography of biological molecules (biochromatography). He was quick to notice the importance of the chromatographic separation and purification process for proteins such as antibodies, and the importance of its mechanistic models. The "Yamamoto model," which makes it possible to infer the separation mechanism, can be applied not only to the rational determination of operation variables but also to the analysis of molecular recognition. The usefulness of the model is being demonstrated in protein drug purification processes in biotech industry throughout the world. Professor Yamamoto's model is now being used both in Japan and overseas in areas ranging from rapid process development to process analysis, and also to the development of novel separation methods. This award represents the high regard from both the academic and industrial worlds that has been accorded to Professor Yamamoto's achievements, through which he has played a leading role internationally in the field of bioseparation engineering.
