SHANGHAI, CHINA--On Wednesday, October 8, Vrije University President Jaap Winter signed an agreement with Fudan University in Shanghai to establish collaboration in the fields of research and education. Fudan University, founded in 1905, is considered to be in the top three universities in China. The two universities initially agree on exchange of students between Amsterdam and Shanghai and also look forward to further academic collaboration. Fudan's Centre for European Studies, which also houses the Dutch Studies Center, has strong ties with the European Studies Centre of Renmin University in Beijing. Renmin and VU University Amsterdam have collaborated intensively for a number of years, and now together with Fudan, VU aims to form an interesting network in the field. Prof. Henk Overbeek (Social Sciences) joined the delegation in Shanghai and is actively involved in the initiatives.
