On March 26, we received 14 guests from National Yunlin University of Science and Technology (YunTech), Taiwan. Dr. Yang Neng-Shu, who is the President of YunTech, and his delegates visited Osaka to pay a courtesy call on Dr. Yasushi Nishimura, the President of OIT.

YunTech is a national university which is located in Douliu city in the southwest of Taiwan. It has four colleges: Engineering, Management, Design, and Humanities and Applied Sciences. The number of students is approximately 10,000.
We have collaborated on student exchange programs in the field of Intellectual Property since we concluded the academic cooperation agreement in 2007. In addition to the current programs, the faculty of Robotics & Design will set up new collaborative projects with YunTech in the near future.
In the meeting on March 26, Dr. Ohsuga, who is the Dean of the faculty of Robotics & Design, provided information on the new projects at the planning stage. After the presentation, she and her colleagues took all the guests to a guided tour of OIT campus.

We strongly hope that the new projects will be successful and our collaboration will expand further.
