Université de Paris and National University of Singapore (NUS) sign a Memorandum of Understanding to continue their international cooperation within the framework of the USPC, and to promote research and academic collaborations in areas of common interest.
The Memorandum of Understanding, signed on December 15th, 2020 by the President of Université de Paris, Professor Christine Clerici and the President of NUS, Professor Tan Eng Chye, covers 4 areas of cooperation:
- The exchange of scientific, academic and technical information and appropriate academic papers and other information of mutual interest in which each party holds intellectual property rights
- Identification of opportunities for exchanges, cooperation, joint research and development in disciplines of mutual interest
- Identification of opportunities for commercial exploitation of the technology
- Organizing and participating in joint academic and scientific activities, such as seminars and conferences.
In order to implement the activities envisaged by this collaboration, NUS and Université de Paris are committed to co-financing projects dealing with joint research, teaching and mobility of graduate students. Calls for projects within the framework of this co-financing will be issued on an annual basis.
This agreement also frames the existing relationship between the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS) and Université de Paris’ Faculty of Health.
The NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine is Singapore’s first and largest medical school. Its mission centres on nurturing highly competent, values-driven and inspired healthcare professionals to transform the practice of medicine and improve health around the world.
The Faculty of Science also has the ambition to work more closely with NUS, especially in mathematics and chemistry. In Singapore more broadly, the Institut de physique du globe de Paris (IPGP) and the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) at NTU (Nanyang Technological University) also have a long-standing relationship.
Within the framework of the calls for projects issued in 2020, more than a third of the proposals received (9 out of 25) were submitted by the Faculty of Societies and Humanities.
This demonstrates the interest of all faculties and the great potential of collaboration with Singapore.
The National University of Singapore (NUS) is Singapore’s flagship university, which offers a global approach to education, research and entrepreneurship, with a focus on Asian perspectives and expertise. The university has 17 faculties across three campuses in Singapore, as well as 12 NUS Overseas Colleges across the world. Close to 40,000 students from 100 countries enrich their vibrant and diverse campus community.
