12 September 2012
This Tuesday, September 11th, should be marked as a truly significant day for the Eastern European Association of Russian and Ukrainian universities. The vice-chancellor of the Abdul Wali Khan University (AWKU) Dr. Ihsan Ali and the executive director of EEUA Mr. Bogdan Voronovskiy signed a memorandum of understanding. According to this memorandum many ways of mutual collaboration were established. The vital point is that this agreement had been brought into reality due to the endless efforts of the Regional Head in South Asia - Mr. Waleed Shah. His strong endeavors resulted in a valuable achievement!
This step officially certified the beginning of a new era, e.g the arrangement of joint scientific, educational and innovative projects. The Association opens a field of numerous opportunities for this university. Hopefully, the most prestigious universities of Russia and of Ukraine will launch successful projects, organize researches and certainly host the students of the Abdul Wali Khan University in the nearest future. A special emphasis will be made on starting cooperation with the higher institutions that specialise on Physics, Ecology, Maths, Economics, Plant protection and Computer Science. The foremost goal is to build up long-term academic linkages that will work as an incentive for the development of sciences. It is expected that a group of selected candidates from the AWKU will embark on a PhD degree at some of the most prominent universities of Russia and Ukraine in the upcoming academic year.
It is necessary to highlight that the event was reported in a renowned educational newspaper - the News. http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-7-131471-AWKU-signs-MoU-with-Russian-varsity
