The University Welcomes Colleagues from the Netherlands

BNRU welcomed colleagues from the Hanze University of Applied Sciences (Hanze UAS)

The two-day visit involved meetings with heads of Institutes and Faculties, and participation in round table discussions and seminars.

On their first day, our guests from the Netherlands went to the Centre for Cross-Cultural Communication to open a small exhibition devoted to our burgeoning relationship with the Groningen based University. The room was filled with representatives of the university administration, scientists, teachers and students. Guests of honour Professor Oleg Polukhin, Rector of BNRU, and Dr Robert Verhofstad, a member of the Executive Board at Hanze UAS cut the ribbon to open the exhibition, which is a collection of symbols of the Netherlands and books about Hanze UAS.
In his opening address, Professor Polukhin said that the Centre for Cross-cultural Communication is the place where students of different nationalities interact. The Rector drew attention to the fact that, while cooperation with Hanze UAS only started in 2012, this comparatively short period has seen a lot of work done in various fields, saying,

In line with our program of academic mobility, several dozen students have studied in the Netherlands. However, our partnership is not limited to education, we also closely cooperate in the scientific sphere. This is underlined by the number of projects aimed at finding completely new solutions in engineering technology. I am confident that we will continue to develop this cooperation for the benefit of our countries and our universities.

Dr Verhofstad then thanked the Rector for his help with achieving these joint results, and went on to talk about the prospects for cooperation in PhD programs. After this, students talked about their projects. The celebration culminated with the presentation of a souvenir called 'Groningen Horizon' by Dr Verhofstad, gratefully received by the Rector, which now adorns the exhibition.
