Signing of an intercollegiate academic and research exchange agreement with Seoul National University

2011-12-6

On October 25, the University of Tokushima signed a university-level academic and research exchange agreement with Seoul National University.

Since 1990, when the University of Tokushima Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences signed an interdepartmental agreement with the Seoul National University College of Pharmacy, the two departments held many exchanges with around 30 academic exchange lectures and symposia, and a symposium at the Awaji Yumebutai International Conference Center last year to mark the 20th anniversary of exchanges between the faculties.

Then in 2010, the University of Tokushima Faculty of Medicine signed an interdepartmental agreement with the Seoul National University College of Medicine, holding international symposia and student exchanges.

For the signing of the current exchange agreement, President Kagawa, Faculty of Medicine Dean Kiwada, Faculty of Medicine Dean Tamaki and International Center Vice-Director Jin from the University of Tokushima visited Seoul National University. Seoul National University President Oh and International Center Vice-Director Jin discussed the past and future of academic exchanges and how to enhance exchange between the two universities, and an agreement was signed.

The current intercollegiate exchange agreement is expected to result in further joint research and more active exchanges of faculty and students.
