CUEB School of Economics and University of Rome Tor Vergata Join Hands
At the beginning, Lang Lihua, on behalf of School of Economics, extended a warm welcome to the delegation. Lang said that Masters’ joint training program served as a foundation on which we could carry out in-depth collaboration, and she acknowledged the commitment and joint efforts made by the two sides. She also put forward initiatives for implementing high-level and extensive research cooperation.
Piga Gustavo mentioned that the promising cooperation in the coming years could not only bring us fruitful results in terms of the education of master and doctoral candidates, but also enable both universities to conduct joint research on China-Europe economic development in the context of China’s B&R initiative.
Zhang Liancheng made an introduction of the Forums on China Economic Growth and Business Cycle and the Reports on Quality of Life in Chinese Cities, a platform on which scholars on both sides can share their insights with each other. In addition, the two sides had discussion on sending exchange students in the following spring term and shared their insights on academic exchanges among doctoral candidates.
After the meeting, Piga Gustavo and DamianoPinnacchio held a symposium with overseas students from Italy and some masters majoring in international business. Then, delegates from both sides took photos and exchanged their gifts.
With the support of CUEB, the School of Economics reached an agreement with the University of Rome Tor Vergata in May, 2017 on Masters’ Dual Degree Programme. The project will be officially launched in 2018 when outstanding masters majoring in international business fly to study in Italy in the spring term. Through meeting, the two sides came to the decision of building a platform for joint R&D and in-depth cooperation, with a consensus on the roadmap. In the coming years, the School of Economics is going to detail cooperation projects step by step with partner schools at home and abroad as well as research institutions, embarking on a new journey toward making its research landscape truly international.
