Speaking on the day of the signing Professor James Conroy said: “This marks a significant moment in both histories of these two world changing institutions. The MOU will forge stronger links for the benefit of all, helping enhance greater learning and knowledge exchange and provide greater opportunities for students and staff both here in Scotland and the United States of America.”
