An-Najah University Welcomes MIT Expert Professor Franz Ulm to Discuss Innovative Energy Solutions
An-Najah University's Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, recently hosted a distinguished guest, Professor Franz Ulm from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in America. The visit was part of the University's annual plan to foster international collaboration and engagement with leading institutions and experts worldwide.
Under the guidance of Dr. Ahmed Bassalat, in partnership with MIT, the Department of Physics organized the visit of Professor Franz Ulm to share his expertise in the field of energy. The event was attended by Professor Raed Al-Koni, Dean of the Faculty of Science, Dr. Hadil Abualrob, Head of the Physics Department, Dr. Monther Dwaikat, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts, along with distinguished researchers from the Faculties of Engineering and Science, and a group of enthusiastic students.
During the gathering, Professor Al-Koni warmly welcomed Professor Ulm and expressed gratitude for his dedication to advancing education in Palestine and his close cooperation with the Department of Physics. Dr. Abualrob emphasized the scientific value of the workshop and highlighted the significance of addressing topics that directly impact the daily lives of Palestinians.
Professor Ulm presented an exciting and groundbreaking energy storage mechanism, which has the potential to be produced in large quantities using readily available and affordable materials such as cement, water, and carbon black. This innovative approach aims to foster energy independence in Palestine.
Following the presentation, a stimulating scientific discussion ensued, allowing researchers and faculty members from An-Najah University to exchange experiences and pose insightful questions to the guest.
As a result of the fruitful dialogue, it was mutually agreed upon to form a dedicated research team at An-Najah University focused on this groundbreaking energy technology. The team's efforts are expected to make significant contributions to enhancing energy provision and independence in Palestine.
