Located at the Istana Hotel, Kuala Lumpur (November 6, 2018), the Rector of UNP Prof. Ganefri, Ph.D., with Vice-Rector of UPSI, Prof. Dato' Dr. Mohammad Shatar Sabran signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two universities. Prof. Dato' Dr. Mohammad Shatar Sabran stated that currently there is no university that can stand alone without cooperation with other universities on abroad.
Therefore this activity is important to enhance the collaboration in the fields of student and staff mobility, research publications, and networking for better future of university. Furthermore, Prof. Ganefri, Ph.D., emphasized that the MoU was carried out on the basis to develop good relationship between two universities that had some previous activities together, such as joint conferences, workshops, staff and student visits especially between the Faculties of Mathematics and Sciences of UNP (MIPA UNP) with the Faculty of Science and Mathematics of UPSI. The MoU will strengthen the existing cooperation. UNP will provide a budget to build research collaboration between the lecturers of the two universities.
The signing of MoU is one of parts of “The Exchange and International Collaboration Program” between UNP and UPSI in 2018 (IECP UPSI 2018).
