  3. Courses of different levels and skills for faculty and students;
  4. Mutual exchange of information resulting from research findings, publications, and academic material.
  • The parties signing the agreement commit to organize student exchange as specified in the First Clause, for one or two academic semesters. Longer periods may be allowed provided that a specific Supplementary Agreement to this Cooperation Agreement is signed.


Duration of the Agreement

  • This agreement shall take effect from the date of last signature hereto and shall be valid for five (5) years. It will be in force from 13 November 2014 to 13 November 2019.
