Department of Chemistry

Visit to Zhejiang University

Tue Nov 18 14:32:00 GMT 2014

Staff from the Chemistry department with colleagues from Zhejiang University Steven Bull, Chris Frost, and Simon Lewis attended a research meeting in Hangzhou, China.

The meeting at Zhejiang University (a Preferred International Partner Institution) was with Professor Jingzhi Sun from the Institute of Polymer Science and follows on from the successful exploratory visit in 2013 by Steven Bull and Tony James.

This second visit was in part supported by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Internationalisation Professor Colin Grant and the University’s International Researcher Mobility Support Scheme, which is aimed at funding short visits to key foreign universities to build links between institutions.

During the visit a variety of approaches to strengthen research links between the two Universities were discussed including staff and student exchanges in 2015.
