International Exchange

We held the 5th Asian Conference on “Green Technology in Agriculture: Chances and Challenges for a Better Life” at Chiang Mai, Thailand from 19 to 22 July 2015, in collaboration with Faculty of Agriculture, Chiang Mai University. Professors from Ningxia University (China), Kasetsart University (Thailand), Tay Nguyen University (Vietnam), Mongolian University of Life Sciences, and University Putra Malaysia, were invited to this conference. Thirty students and 13 professors from our faculty attended and all students presented their research in English. In 2015, Niigata University was selected as one of the universities in the “Re-Inventing Japan Project” supported by JSPS-MEXT. In this project, Niigata University, together with Fukushima University and 3 Turkish universities (Ankara University, Ege University, Middle East Technical University) established a student exchange program called “Global Framework of Student Capacity Development for Resilient Agriculture and Food Production” for the next 5 years (GLocal Age 2020). As such, many undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professors, have opportunities to go abroad to make academic presentations or to promote international joint research projects.
