The delegation was warmly received by the Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mr. Honoré Bernard Youfegnuy, and the Senior Tutor Dr. Daniel Duviol Tcheutia.
Dr. Markus delivered a talk to students in which he presented Bosch Company, what they are doing in general and in Africa in particular, as well as some problems they have already solved in Africa.
“In addition, we discussed on possibilities of partnerships, and in which aspects we could collaborate for a win-win partnership.
