June, 2018: Visiting the Centro de Investigaciones en Optica in Leon (Mexico) and dual-degree agreement signature.
Micky Rakotondrabe went to Centro de Investigaciones en Optica (CIO)
in Leon (Mexico)
in order to finalize the dual-degree agreement relative to the GREEM international master and between the CIO and the UBFC.
The CIO has signed the agreement and Micky Rakotondrabe brought the signed document in France for signature by the UBFC and by the UFC.
He also gave a seminar on introduction to the feedforward control of mechatronic systems.
During this trip, Micky Rakotondrabe attended as well the American Control Conference (Milwaukee MI USA) where he met colleagues with whom he collaborates in research.
The GREEM international master was among the centers of discussions with them. As outcome, it is expected that internships exchanges start in 2019 by sending at Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada)
GREEM students for some months for internhips.

April 16-20, 2018: Visiting the Université de Yaoundé 1 in Cameroon and reinforcing collaboration.
Micky Rakotondrabe visited the Laboratory of Modelling and Simulation in Engineering, Biomimetics and Prototypes (LAMSEBP)
of the Université de Yaoundé 1
The LAMSEBP was founded and is directed by Professor Paul Woafo
who is the president of the Cameroon physical Society.
During his visiting, Micky Rakotondrabe gave two seminars: a seminar on the GREEM international master with introduction on feedforward control of mechatronic systems, and a seminar
on piezoelectric mechatronic systems: development, design methodologies, modeling, control, sensing, energy harvesting.
The visiting aimed also to discuss on future collaboration in term of both teaching and research.
