MoU renewed

Leibniz Universitat Hannover (LUH), Germany, has renewed a memorandum of understanding with Tamil Nadu Agricultural University to facilitate academic exchange and co-operation programmes in education and research.

R. Rabindran, Registrar of TNAU, visited the German University to ink the MoU on behalf of the Indian university.

The earlier MoU was inked three years ago, which facilitated four students of TNAU to visit LUH and undergo summer courses, and 15 undergraduate students of horticulture from LUH visited TNAU in 2012 to learn about tropical horticulture.

This academic year, one student will spend a whole semester at TNAU to study tropical horticulture crop production, while five B.Tech students from TNAU will undertake short-term training programmes at LUH on protected cultivation of horticulture crops.
