by SPU Web Editor
On October 23, a delegation from Andalas University (AU) in Indonesia visited our university. Delegation, led by Rector Prof. Dr. Tafdil Husni, was welcomed by the SUA Vice-Rector for Strategic Development Doc. Ing. Drahoslav Lancaric, PhD.
Vice-Rector Lančarič emphasized the active cooperation with the partner university, which started in 2011 as a part of a joint project of SUA, AU and OSIVO company. The project was focused on breeding and subsequent cultivation of wheat variety in tropical climatic conditions of Indonesia. SUA trained experts in the field and prepared teaching materials, which are still a valuable source of information.
Members of the delegation also appreciated the visit of the AgroBioTech Research Centre, during which they came up with concrete proposals for scientific and research cooperation.
AU and SUA are interested in developing the cooperation started, as evidenced by the signature of the joint memorandum.
