Yonsei University is the oldest private university in South Korea.

This appointment strengthens the partnership between the two universities, which emerged from bilateral delegations and student exchange programme supported by Professor Colin Grant, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Internationalisation.

Professor Matthew Davidson, Director of our Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies, who recently returned from a visit to Yonsei, said: “We are addressing global research challenges that can only be solved through international cooperation.”

The collaboration is supported by the award of a new International Grant from the Royal Society to facilitate researcher mobility.

In April, Professor Walsh plans to visit Seoul to deliver a postgraduate course on Computational Materials Science, accompanied by PhD student Adam Jackson from the Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemical Technologies.
