On August 30, 2018, Prof. Taejun Han, Acting President of Ghent University Global Campus (GUGC) led a delegation to Ocean University of China (OUC). Vice President Li Huajun received the guests and the two sides had a meeting.
Vice President Li warmly welcomed President Han and his delegation. Li briefed the guests on OUC’s history, disciplinary strengths and the effort it is making to become a world-class university. He then reviewed the fruitful cooperation with the main campus of Ghent University during the past three decades in the fields of joint education, academic exchanges and scientific research. After extending warm congratulations on the founding of the global campus in Incheon, he expressed an expectation for bilateral and multilateral collaborations with GUGC in response to today’s global trends.
