CUCEE - Year 2020

The year 2020 began with the visits of the THM CUCEE coordinator at the University of Zielona Góra, at the TalTech (February 2020) as well as at the National Technical University in Lviv (March 2020).


The COVID pandemic had unfortunately negative impact on the further network activities. After only 4 students from Poland, Estonia, Ukraine and Lithuania took part in Integrated Study Abroad in Giessen in the academic year 2019/20, in the next winter semester 2020/21 the program supervisors gave up any academic exchange.

As a consequence of this difficult situation the CUCEE annual meeting of the partner universities took place in November 2020 online.



Since 1 November 2020, Professor Klytta has been supported at the THM by Professor Rafael Greszczynski in the coordination of the CUCEE network. Professor Greszczynski teaches in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management (WI) at the THM in Friedberg. His focus is on technical mechanics, design methodology and design systematics. Furthermore, he supervises the labs for CAD and the Virtual Reality Lab.

CUCEE – Year 2017

The year 2017 began – after the BSTU Minsk (Belarus) joined us – in the cooperation net consisting meanwhile of 7 universities! It was a particular year, a year of the 20th anniversary of the cooperation between the TH Mittelhessen and the University Zielona Góra, which 3 years later spread out into the European network CUCEE.

The anniversary, celebrated in Zielona Góra, was an opportunity for distinction of prof. Marius Klytta as the initiator of the above mentioned cooperation and of the later created CUCEE net. Prof. M.Klytta was honoured – as a first person in the history of this polish university – with the title of “Professor of Honour”. It was an special award for his particular achievements in the field of the internationalization of both universities.

The celebrations were connected with the traditional spring meeting of the CUCEE coordinators. The November meeting at the TH Mittelhessen was dedicated to common research projects, to the student- and staff-mobility in the next semester and to the plans for 2018. For the first time shared in it the coordinator from the BSTU Minsk, prof. Dzmitry Karpovich, as well as the new coordinators from the TU Vilnius, prof. Sarunas Paulikas and from the TU Tallinn, Ass. prof. Anton Rassölkin.
