The LSTME Busan is a publicly funded German Engineering Research and Development Institute operating in Busan, South Korea. Operated by the LSTME e.V. – an associated institute of the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuernberg (FAU), it was invited by Busan Metropolitan City and the Korean Ministry for Trade, Industry, and Energy.
LSTME Busan aims to transfer german Engineering approaches and capabilities from the mother institute – the Chair of Fluid Mechanics at FAU, to Korea. Research is structured around fluid mechanics with applications in numerical simulations, food technology, biotechnology, hydrogen and energy research as well as classical fluid mechanics.
