On the afternoon of April 11th, Professor Rick Halpern, Vice President of the Scarborough Campus, University of Toronto, Canada, and his assistant Miss Yan Yuan visited NWU. President Fang Guanghua met the delegation and signed an inter-collegiate letter of intent of friendship and cooperation with Rick Halpern. This determined that initial specific research cooperation would be conducted in life sciences, urban and environmental science, social sciences and other fields. Professor Halpern expressed his heartfelt thanks to NWU for the warm reception he received. He said the subject areas of the two universities are highly similar to each other, thus laying a solid foundation for substantial scientific cooperation between them. He invited six to eight experts in ecology, botany and environmental science to visit Canada during the summer vacation to further discuss the details of research collaboration.
