Prof. Dr. Jin Miyawaki from Kyushu University Delivers a Lecture on Deep Tech Applications

On Tuesday, June 20, 2023, Prof. Dr. Jin Miyawaki from Kyushu University (Japan) held a presentation titled “Activated Carbons with Enhanced Effective Adsorption Amount: Deep Tech Solution in Effective Usage of Waste Heat Resources” at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). The presentation is part of the project that is a combination of technical and managerial sciences where IUS is represented by Asst. Prof. Dr. Altijana Hromić-Jahjefendić  from the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emil Knezović from the Faculty of Business and Administration, with support from Dr. Nađa Beglerović from the Office of Sponsored Projects.

During the lecture, the professor presented his research and the impact of carbon materials in our environment. The presentation provided a detailed insight in the application of activated carbon material in adsorption heat pumps as a part of Deep Tech applications.

The event is one of the project activities for an IUS project in collaboration with the University of Banja Luka: “DeepGreenInno - Deep Tech in Material Sciences: Greening the Balkan HEIs Innovation and Entrepreneurial Potential”. It is important to mention that this is the first EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) HEI project that has been awarded to a higher education institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

After the presentation, the professor was given a Campus tour where he had a chance to visit the IUS research centers and laboratories and see first-hand the infrastructure our academic staff and students have at their disposal.
