GRAB Lunch focusing on the University's international strategic alliances

Date: Wednesday 27 April 2016
Time: 12.30 - 13.30pm
Venue: The Sir Alwyn Williams Building (Level 5)

All staff are warmly invited to join a special GRAB lunch event focusing on the University's international strategic partners: Columbia University, McGill University, and Nankai University.

As well as focusing on our existing international partnerships, the lunch will also discuss aspiring institutional alliances, especially the University of Hong Kong.

The GRAB Lunch (food will be provided) will be hosted by Professor David Fearn (International Dean for North America) and Professor Jane Duckett (International Dean for East Asia)

As the University strives to extend and diversify its reach globally, the overall aim of the session is to raise awareness amongst staff about current levels of engagement with key international partners, and to hear specific examples of academic collaboration. For that reason, the lunch will include a series of brief presentations from UofG staff with recent experience of working with these partner institutions.

Attendees will also have the chance to:

  • Meet with other staff, including the International Deans for North America and East Asia, as well as Dr Chris Yeomans, Head of International Affairs (MaRIO).
  • Discuss their work/research and any ideas they may have for developing the University's links with strategic partners.
  • Ask questions and find out about funding opportunities that are available to develop links with the above institutions.

For catering purposes, please let us know in advance if you wish to attend, by emailing:
