Chungnam National University (CNU) has signed an agreement with Haute Ecole Leonard de Vinci University in Brussels, Belgium, for student and research exchanges and established an international cooperation system.
CNU President Oh Deok-sung signed a sisterhood agreement with the current president Damien HUVELLE and his successor Valerie BIEVA of the de Vinci University in Brussels on July 8 (local time).
The de Vinci University is comprised of five reputable institutions (ECAM, Ecole normale catholique du Brabant wallon, Institut libre Marie Haps, Institut Paul Lambin and Parnasse-ISEI) in Belgium. It is a university specialized in job offering and internship linkage through a center jointly operated with Jobteazer.
Earlier in the day, a seminar was held at Academie De Recherche Et D'Enseignement Superieur (ARES) in Belgium on ways to advance university education and increase exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.
ARES is a subsidiary of the Belgian Education Ministry, which plays a similar role as the Korean Council for University Education (KCUE) in Korea.
The seminar, which took place at the ARES, was attended by CNU President Oh, Lee Sang-kyung, president of Gyeongsang National University, Song Suk-eon, president of Jeju National University, Kim Hyung-jin, Korean ambassador to Belgium/EU, and Damien HUVELLE, president of the de Vinci University in Brussels.
CNU expects international cooperation for education and research to be strengthened through the signing of the new sister university agreement with de Vinci University and a visit to ARES.
