Wittenborg Strengthens Academic Ties with China as it Signs Agreement with Weifang University
Following on from a visit to China last year, Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has entered into an inter-institutional agreement of cooperation with the Weifang University of Science and Technology in Shandong, China.
The common goal of the agreement is to promote academic exchange between the Netherlands and China, to enhance mutual education performance, and to strengthen collaboration in areas of mutual interest, so as to develop academic and research cooperation.
Weifang was represented by two delegates, Mr Jianping Wang and Mr Yanhui Chengh. They were welcomed by Wittenborg CEO, Maggie Feng, and the chair of the executive board, Peter Birdsall.
The agreement includes the development of exchange programmes for academic staff, researchers and students from the two institutions, collaboration in the publication of research and academic teaching. It also allows for further negotiations in developing more programmes and projects of mutual interest and entering into supplementary agreements.
The agreement, which was signed on 14 December 2017, will be in force for five years.
