During the second day the participants took part in workshops and panel discussions, dealing with issues like "International and Intercultural Research Cooperation" or "the Further Development of the Centres of Excellence and Centres of African Excellence Model".

For IEE and ISD it was a great opportunity to spend some time with the network partners, to exchange experiences with other Centres and to discuss future joint research activities.
