Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB) of Chinese Academy of Sciences signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the University of Ottawa (uOttawa), Canada on Oct. 13, 2014, to promote excellence through multidisciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations and build a partnership consistent with the strategic goals and values of both institutions.
The MoU mainly focuses on the mobility of professors and research personnel, generation of external research funding, production and dissemination of knowledge. The joint symposia on fish/aquatic physiology, exchange programs for staff, doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows, joint research projects and joint research centers are specified in the MoU. It is hoped that both sides can complment each other in aquatic biology and establish a stable cooperative partnership.
IHB and uOttawa started partnership in recent years. Prof. Vance Trudeau from uOttawa has had a close relation with IHB Prof. HU Wei’s research group. They are now jointly conducting an International Research Acceleration Program which is funded by uOttawa. In order to push forward the bilateral collaboration, Prof. Perry visited IHB this June. Both sides had some initial collaborative intentions which laid the foundation for the formal signing of this MoU.
The University of Ottawa, establish in 1848, is a bilingual and comprehensive medical-doctoral university, and a leader in Canada in research intensity, interdisciplinary activities and innovation.
