UFS strengthens links with Japan


The University of the Free State (UFS) has strengthened strategic links with Japan in various areas of research in the fields of material and nano sciences, as well as biotechnology. Joint funding opportunities for research were discussed with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the Tokyo University of Agriculture and the Tokyo Institute for Science and Technology. A framework for extended co-operation and research support was also developed and will be finalised during the 2nd SA-Japan University Forum meeting in Cape Town in April 2008. This follows the recent visit of the Head of Internationalisation at the UFS, Dr Aldo Stroebel, to Japan. His visit was facilitated by the ambassador of SA to Japan, Dr Ben Ngubane.
