National Kaohsiung University (Taiwan) and Jamia Millia University (JMI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen academic ties. Through this MoU, both the institutes will take up joint research activities and faculty exchange in the fields of Science and Technology, Education, Humanities and Arts. Professor Talat Ahmed (Vice-Chancellor of JMI) and Mr. Wu Lien Shang (President of National Kaohsiung University) signed the MoU. A Taiwanese delegation paid a high-level visit to JMI where the partnership was signed between the two universities.
Explaining about MoU, Professor Talat Ahmed said that the collaboration between the two universities would open new opportunities for young researchers working in different fields (as mentioned-above). He further pointed that Asian universities have to be active in collaborating with international universities. These kinds of collaborations will also boost the international rankings of the universities or institutes.
