On 23.05.2023, we hosted three staff members from Dalian University of Technology, who visited the University of Miskolc in the framework of the Erasmus+ (KA107) credit mobility programme, organised by the Institute of Energy Engineering and Chemical Machinery, with the assistance of Dr. Katalin Voith, Senior Research Fellow. We thank Prof. Qiao Dongsheng, Prof. Tang Guoqiang and Dr. Yan Jun for their visit and their interest in the work of our institute!

It was interesting to hear about the pioneering research of Chinese colleagues in the field of fluid mechanics.
