Prof. MOU had a discussion with NIMS Executive Vice Presidents following NIMS overview presentation.  Status of the collaborations between NIMS and Taiwanese universities and research institutes, which have been increasingly active last several years, was presented and then how to explore the future collaboration and the possible cooperation between NIMS and NSC itself were intensively discussed.
Both sides are very eager to build a cooperative relation and have agreed to consider facilitating and supporting researcher’s exchange, joint workshops and Taiwanese post-docs studying at NIMS for universities and research institutes all over Taiwan.
