Martin Dulig, Saxon State Minister for Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport, called the transCampus a role model for international cooperation during his delegation visit on 16 May. At the Science Gallery next to the Guy’s Campus of King’s College London, where the transCampus had organised an event on the occasion, Mr Dulig gained a detailed insight in the manifold scientific and also economic activities taking place between Dresden and London.

Scientists from both universities presented their research results in areas as diverse as the impact of diabetes on Covid-19 infections, the treatment of affective disorders, or the ability of SME-entrepreneurs to adapt to the pandemic in terms of well-being. Moreover, the Dresden-London start-up Innate Repair explained their innovative approach to preventing the regeneration of supposedly defeated tumours.

Later that day, the Chargé d’Affaires of the German Embassy, Julia Gross, invited both the Saxon delegation and the transCampus members to further explore opportunities for cooperation with other guests from the UK and Germany in the pleasant atmosphere of the Residence at Belgrave Square.
