Cooperation under MOU

Home > Collaboration > Collaborative Institute > Cooperation under MOU

Cooperation based on signing an international Memorandum of Understanding

When any NIMS-based research unit agrees to collaborate on research for a specific subject with an international research organization, both parties enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The team leader of the concerned research unit executes the MOU.
