Dr Gert Günzel, Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Finance and Administration, welcomed the visitors and said: “It is my sincere hope that the activities that our academics will propose and present during the parallel counterpart meetings will contribute to produce students with the requisite skills and competencies to function as global citizens.”
Both the Trilateral and Cooperation Agreement afford the institutions the opportunity to collaborate in a range of areas, including curriculum development, staff and student exchanges and joint research projects.
Dr Günzel underscored the importance of all parties making an effort to explore funding opportunities to ensure the realisation of the objectives of the partnerships.
The three-year Cooperation Agreement between NUST and JLU aims to, among others, intensify scholarly relationships through joint symposiums and summer schools. The exchange of scientific publications and the development of common research projects will also be additional focal points.
