By Kerry Milton, on 18 June 2015

On Wednesday 17 June 2015, Dame Nicola Brewer, Vice-Provost (International) hosted a visit to UCL by Peking University’s (PKU) Vice-President, Professor Jie Wang, together with some of his senior colleagues in Engineering, Physical Sciences and Linguistics.

The visit provided an opportunity for Dame Nicola to outline UCL’s Global Engagement Strategy to PKU, to take stock of the collaborative activities between the two universities and to exchange views on the future direction the partnership might take, particularly on the research side.

Besides these discussions, the visit enabled the first UCL: PKU Science and Engineering workshop to take place, co-ordinated by Professor Nick Brook, Dean of the UCL Faculty of Mathematics and Physical Sciences (MAPS). This joint workshop was the first of a series that will be held in 2015,  the others being focussed on Management Science, Infectious Diseases, and Medical Humanities.
