Global alliance of leading technological universities to address global societal issues
Date:4/7/2009

tions for the betterment of mankind," says Dr Su

The Alliance held its first meeting at NTU on 6 April 2009 and elected Dr Su as the first Chairman of the Alliance for a 2-year term.

The Alliance intends to provide a collective academic and technological voice giving impetus to the international community to take action. The target groups include international government bodies and organisations, local and international academic institutions and the international media.

The framework of the Alliance allows individual groups from the various universities to hold periodic meetings, where each meeting will be hosted by one of the universities, in their own country. Individual groups from the various universities working on specific projects may meet more frequently depending on the needs of these projects.

The secretariat function will be rotated among the seven universities. NTU is the secretariat for the Alliance from 2009 to 2011.

As a sign of close and forward looking relations between member institutions of the Alliance, NTU and Imperial College London yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which paves the way for a joint PhD degree programme. This collaboration is also a milestone for both NTU and Imperial College as this is the first time that they are offering a joint PhD programme with a partner university. The joint PhD programme will begin with programmes in bioengineering and chemical and biomolecular engineering. The tentative date for the initial intake is January 2010.
