On June 8 and 9, the Virtual Tongji Days took place. The cooperation between Tongji University and TU Darmstadt has existed for more than 40 years and a number of successful projects have already resulted from this collaboration.

On the first day, a big opening event took place, which focused on the successful cooperation of many years. This was followed by a digital networking session where interdisciplinary exchange took place.

The second day began with nine different workshops on a variety of topics. Workshop 2 "Smart Cities" included a total of 5 presentations which were discussed collectively and a consensus on the implementation of the "Smart City" concept was reached afterwards. The workshop was moderated by Prof. Martin Wagner.

During the closing session, the results of all workshops were briefly summarized by the respective moderators. Vice President Prof. Jens Schneider then gave an overview of what future successful collaborations between the two universities can still be expected, which was also welcomed by the Vice President of Tongji University.
