Meeting with representatives of the German T9

I recently attended an event welcoming the representatives of the "T9", the alliance of leading Institutes of Technology in Germany, to Georgia Tech: RWTH Aachen University, TU Berlin, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, TU Dresden, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, TU München, Universität Stuttgart. Wonderful conversations that updated me about current concerns and opportunities in the landscape of German higher education. The gender balance, as so often in academe (and even more in technology and the sciences) was definitely off here.
