Ravenshaw University on Tuesday announced tie-up with five South Korean universities to promote research collaboration along with academic and cultural exchange programmes.

The University has signed MoUs with the Kyungpook National University, Sangmyung University, Jungwon University, Chonbuk National University and Hanbuk University. The agreements were signed by Vice-Chancellor Prof BC Tripathy on July 12 during his visit to South Korea.

The objective is to further academic, scientific and cultural relationship between the two countries. Promoting research collaboration would be a major thrust area along with faculty and student exchange between the partner universities. Sandwich PhD programmes would be developed under the partnership that would allow scholars of Ravenshaw University to carry out research for their thesis both in Odisha as well as South Korea.

“Under the model, the scholars would register with Ravenshaw University but have to choose topics in consultation with mentors here as well as that of the partner university. The scholar would have to complete part of the thesis here and part in the partner university,” Prof Tripathy said.

The research fellows would be provided scholarship for travelling abroad by Ravenshaw University while the partner university would arrange their accommodation. The research topics would cover all areas of science, social sciences, cultural studies and IT.

Joint programmes at the post-graduate level covering subjects and areas of mutual interest and expertise would also be developed where students would have the opportunity in studying in both the partner institutions. The courses would be announced by the end of this year, Prof Tripathy said.

The tie-up would also facilitate internship as well as joint conferences apart from regular student and faculty trips and exchanges between the institutions.
