20th Anniversary of the ZiiK of TU Berlin

Lupe [1]

For 20 years now the Center for International and Intercultural Communication (ZiiK) of the Faculty IV (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) of the TU Berlin has been active in the field of internationalization and development of IT structures for poor and crisis-stricken countries.


By providing sustainable support for international students, especially from poor and crisis-stricken countries, the ZiiK of TU Berlin aims to create successful prospects for the future, through teaching, research, and numerous projects in the field of information technology (IT) and development cooperation. For example, the ZiiK created a special Master's program in Computer Science for Afghan students as well as vocational trainings for IT specialists.


On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the ZiiK of TU berlin, we celebrated together with invited guests, supporters and friends in the atrium of the TU Berlin on Tuesday, 14 May 2019.


In speeches and an exhibition the importance of IT structures in poor countries and crisis-stricken countries was emphasized especially with the background of constantly growing digitization and global challenges. Works by the artist Uwe Bremer on the genesis of the universe, cosmology and astronomy, quantum theory and astrophysics were exhibited as an artistic backdrop.

Other speakers included Ms. Tatjana Schenke-Olivieri, Federal Foreign Office, Mr. Omid Nouripour, Member of the Bundestag and Speaker for Foreign Policy, Bündis 90/Grüne, Mr. Abed Nadjib, former Minister Counselor of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Berlin, and many other highly esteemed companions of our projects (see Program). The event was moderated by Prof. Dr. Uwe Nestmann.

The festive event offered a vivid review of 20 years of ZiiK and an outlook on future activities and was also seen as a contribution to intercultural exchange. Furthermore, there was the opportunity to meet Afghan Master students and the ZiiK team personally and to exchange ideas.

We would like to thank all speakers and guests for their active support!
