In Sdyney, the BOKU delegation (Prof. Barbara Hinterstoisser, Prof. Markus Fiebig, Prof. Dietmar Haltrich, Prof. Andreas Muhar, Prof. Martin Gerzabek and Dr Margarita Calderón-Peter) visited the University of Wollongong and the Macquarie University, with whom we renewed the bilateral agreement. This partner university offers 5 PhD scholarships for cotutelle-doctoral studies in the next 3 years!
In Brisbane, we visited the University of Queensland, the Queensland University of Technology and Griffith University, with whom we had intense discussion on future co-operation options. The bilateral agreement with Griffith University was prolonged.
In New Zealand, the long-lasting co-operation with Lincoln University was renewed and a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Canterbury initiated.
A detailed travel report will be published in the next BOKU Magazine.
