SUERC signs MoU with Fukushima University
On Friday October 10th a delegation from SUERC visited Fukushima University to inspect the new Institute of Environmental Radioactivity based at the University. Fukushima University President, Professor Katsumi Nakai, and SUERC Director, Professor Rob Ellam, signed a Memorandum of Understanding in support of the on-going collaboration between our two institutions. Professor Ellam presented Professor Nakai with a traditional Scottish Quaich carrying the University of Glasgow crest in recognition of the spirit of mutual understanding and goodwill embedded in the MoU. Joining the SUERC delegation was Dr Alan Cresswell whose current secondment to Fukushima University is amongst the first tangible actions under the MoU. The latest group of visiting scientists from Fukushima University are expected in the next few weeks.
