Hiroshima University (HU) and National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) have been collaborating on entrepreneurship education since the end of last year, which triggered the talk about the possibility of inter-university agreement conclusion. After the discussion, on August 31, 2017, a signing ceremony for the agreement was held. From the UNAM side, Prof. Ken Oyama, Vice President (International Development) attended on behalf of the President and Prof. Takashi Takata, Executive Vice President, attended as a representative of HU.
At this ceremony, both sides agreed to foster students exchange. Another proposal includes a joint seminar on specific themes. The new partners will start a detailed discussion on these initiatives.
