International Exchange

Holden the principle of open education and scientific development, the center energetically sticks to communicate with various international academic institutes and universities. To date, the center has established a good cooperation relationship with more than twenty world-renowned universities, respectively, including Cornell University, Georgia State University, Rice University, Curtin University, Flinders University,Nagoya University in Japan, Akita University. Twenty three well known experts, Kozinski, Muir, Shanbenliangyi, Jiang SanPing, Miller, et. al., have been recruited as honorary/visiting/part time professors. Every year, many excellent scholars from all over the world invited to lecture in our center. Professors in our center have also been invited abroad to lecture and participate academic seminars. Recently, the center held the 12th International Symposium on East Asian Resources Recycling Technology and International Seminar on Soil Environment protection & Ecological Civilization Construction,whichhad more than 300 participants. Moreover, the center co-organized the 11th International Symposium on East Asian Resources Recycling Technologyand participatedmore than 10 international academic conferences, such as TMS annual meeting as well as Environment and Health of China-Australia. These academic communications not only benefit all of the faculty and students of the center, but also expand the international and domestic influence of the center.
