Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) and University of Leeds, UK, have agreed to expand collaborations on education and research. The agreement was signed by UGM Vice- Rector for Cooperation and Alumni, Dr. Paripurna Sugarda, S.H.,L.L.M., and Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation of University of Leeds, Prof. Lisa Roberts, on Friday (25/11) at the Conference Room.

Lisa Robert shared the views, hoping that the collaboration would enhance the human resources quality of both parties. “Hopefully in the future stronger collaborations would be established in more areas,” said Roberts.
