Professor Andreas Peter Ruediger of the Energy Materials Telecommunication Research Centre at INRS has been made an honorary Fellow of the Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS). The university also awarded him a fellowship that will enable him to continue his teaching and research activities as a visiting professor in the Department of Applied Sciences and Mechatronics. He is one of 4 winners of fellowships offered by the university to international researchers in 2015–2016. 

As head of the Nanophotonics/Nanoelectronics Laboratory, Professor Ruediger is already collaborating on a research project with Professor Christina Schindler of the Munich University of Applied Sciences. Their project on resistive switching in nanoporous SiOx materials received a grant from Quebec's Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie as part of the 2014–2016 Bavaria-Quebec Cooperation Program. Professor Schindler visited INRS in January 2014 with her collaborator, Michael Kaiser, and Professor Ruediger made a brief stay in Munich in January 2015 to present INRS and its research activities.

During the 2016 winter term, Professor Ruediger will give three courses a week and continue his research on exploring the full potential of multifunctional materials such as electronic oxides for new applications in nanoelectronics and nanobiotechnology. He will offer a course in functionalized scanning probe microscopy and teach two other courses with Professor Schindler, one on micro- and nanoanalysis, the other on semiconductors and thin film technology.

Addendum (bayFOR): One of the aims of this collaboration between Hochschule München and INRS is to widen the student exchange opportunities between Bavaria and Quebec. As soon as August 2015, a Bavarian student will be travelling across the Atlantic to work with Prof. Ruediger in Quebec for 5 months. He is supported by an International mobility scholarship offered by bayFOR, the Bavarian Research Alliance.
