On May 12 -13 our DICAMP students from Fraunhofer MOEZ, University of Leipzig and HHL had their final presentations of their master theses in Leipzig, Germany. Even though most of them did not finish to evaulate and analyze important data for their theses it was necessary and interesting to see what they have been doing during the last 3 months. Their final presentations in Tunis will be held on June 17 -18. All of them did a great job in researching, writing and presenting their work to their German supervisors. Good luck to everyone for the final presentations in Tunis!
On Sunday eight DICAMP students arrived in Leipzig to write their master theses at our three institutions: University of Leipzig, Fraunhofer MOEZ and HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. They will be here for three months working on different topics. We will keep you updated about their work and social life. So welcome to Leipzig and we are looking forward to a creative and productive time.

From December 19th-20th 2013 DICAMP partners will meet in Paris at our partner institution MINES ParisTech. In our last project meeting of this year, European and Tunisian partners will continue working on the report for the international accreditation of our master programme. Besides we will discuss and analyze the last two project years as well as focus on the final commitments. The students’ feedback about the courses that have been taught as well as the feedback of the project studies will be the basis for this discussion. Also the master thesis of the students especially those who are doing it in Europe, a further development action plan and sustainability strategy as well as the graduation and final project event will be important points of discussion.
