Beyond that, it has supported to have close to 40 staff exchanges for short courses. Partnership with Natural Resource Institute in the University of Greenwich was based on the agreement signed following the visit of Prof. John Morton and Dr. Tim, Chancellor of the Natural Research Institute (NRI). The central purpose of the agreement was to develop educational and research cooperation based on mutual interests. The two parties have committed themselves to solidify their collaboration to the extent of launching a PhD program in the area of their core competencies in the future.
