Strengthening Bonds: LEIZ and University of Lodz

LEIZ is delighted to share the progress of our ongoing collaboration with the University of Lodz, a partnership that has been flourishing for several years through the Transcultural Caravan initiative.

In July 2022, a delegation of students from ZU, led by Dr. Jessica Schwengber, visited the University of Lodz as part of the Transcultural Student Research Group (TSRG) project. 

Since 2022, the University of Lodz has joined the Transcultural Leadership Network, enriching the annual Transcultural Leadership Summit (TLS) organized by LEIZ at Zeppelin University since 2016 with parallel events in Lodz and a hybrid slot for the global audience.

In November 2023, we had the pleasure of hosting Prof. Tomasz Kamínski, Associate Professor for International and Political Studies at the University of Lodz. Prof. Kamínski participated in workshops and teaching formats led by Prof Josef Wieland, Dr Matthias Niedenführ, Dr. Schwengber, and Dr. Lukas Belser.

In February 2024, Mr. Paweł Behrendt, a PhD Candidate at the University of Lodz, sought an external reviewer for his PhD thesis on the relations between Japan and China. Dr. Niedenführ was able to connect him with Prof. Stephen Nagy, a renowned expert in East Asian International Relations based at Sophia University Tokyo.

Looking ahead, Dr. Niedenführ will participate in the Lodz East Asia Meeting (LEAM) international conference at the University of Lodz in June 2024. We are also planning further discussion events with our partners in Lodz.

We are committed to deepening and invigorating our international cooperation with our partners at the research and student level. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting partnership.
