On June 20th, scientists from BOKU and from Chinese Institutions met to immerse into Chinese and Austrian culture.

Scientists from BOKU and from Chinese Institutions first had the opportunity to meet online in order to get to know colleagues from their field of research and to discuss ideas for cooperation. In a second "on-site" part of the event, a cooperation agreement with the Confucius Institute of KFU Graz was signed (for language course offers etc.) and highlights from Austrian and Chinese art (music and poems) were presented. 

All suggestions for co-operation activities as well as funding options will now be disseminated within BOKU and the participating Chinese institutions, and BOKU students and staff will also soon be informed about the Chinese language course offers. A follow-up event will take place in November - in case of interest, please contact margarita.calderon-peter(at)boku.ac.at
