Micro-Pyramid for HeKKSaGOn


Nanoscribe has once again managed to make a big impact with a tiny present: As part of the HeKKSaGOn conference, which took place from September 29-30 in Karlsruhe, Japanese university presidents were given 3D-printed miniature replications of Karlsruhe´s pyramid, only 2 mm in height. Additionally, we printed the logos of HeKKSaGOn, KIT, and Nanoscribe on the sides of the pyramid to give them an individual, personal touch.

HeKKSaGOn is an acronym for the network of six participating universities: Heidelberg, Kyoto, Karlsruhe, Sendai, Göttingen, and Osaka. The German/Japanese University Network was founded in 2010. The aim is to develop common ideas in education, research, and innovation to strengthen international cooperation in the fields of science, technology, economy, and culture.
