Consolodate substantial collaboration with partner universities and explore opportuniries along with governmental promotion of Southbound Elite Policy, February 4 to 9, 2018.
KMU delegation join the tour, Philippines Industry-City-University Entrepreneurship links for Inclusive Asian and Philippin Human Resource and Socio-Econiomic Development and also visited two partner universities in Philippines in hope of consolidating our substantial collaborations in the early February. Thanks to Southern Taiwan University Alliance and the effort of Chair Professor E.M. Wu, many southern Taiwan universities were called up together to head for Philippines to seek potential collaborations. Meanwhile, Dean Professor Hung-Yi Chuang led the crew of 2 KMU delegates, Vice Dean Professor Bin Huang and Director of Chinese Medicine, Professor Chung-Jen Chen, to visit our partner universities, University of the Philippines, Manila and University of Santo Tomas. KMU crew had a partner, Chief Executive Officer of Taiwan Jellyfig Biotechnology Co., Ltd, Mr. C.J. Chen joined the group to seek possibilities of collaboration with companies in Philippines.
The courtesy calls to partner universities were deemed quite fruitful. Hopefully, KMU would be able to invite Professor Teodoro J. Herbosa, Vice Chancellor of UP system to KMU to have further discussion for collaboration. Meanwhile, KMU would still make more effort on recruiting more faculty of UP to seek Ph.D degree. The visit to UST meant to substantialize our collaboration from College of Pharmacy to College of Life Sciences. They sent exchange student from Faculty of Sciences to KMU in 2017 and this year, their Faculty of Pharmacy requested to launch collaboration with our College of Pharmacy. During the courtesy call and the meeting with Faculty of Pharmacy, our delegates settled down many future collaboration including research collaboration, staff exchange, Ph.D student program, etc.
Hopefully, in the future, KMU will have long-term and sustanable southbound elite projects.
