JU Rector meets with the representative of Taipei in Poland

JU Rector meets with the representative of Taipei in Poland

On 5 March, the Jagiellonian University was visited by a delegation from the Taipei Representative Office in Warsaw, which included the Taipei Representative Sharon S. N. Wu together with her colleagues Corinna Hu and Małgorzata Bartczak. They were received in Collegium Novum by JU Rector Prof. Jacek Popiel and JU Vice-Rector for International Relations Prof. Dorota Malec.


Prof. Dorota Malec outlined the relationship between the Jagiellonian University and Taiwanese higher education institutions: the Kraków university has so far concluded 9 cooperation agreements and provided education to 20 students from Taiwan, and also employs 5 employees with Taiwanese citizenship. She also noted that the JU Institute of the Middle and Far East and its Taiwan Studies Centre are the units that carry out the most advanced research and teaching activities in the field of Taiwan studies at the University.

Sharon S. N. Wu expressed her satisfaction about the relations between the Jagiellonian University and Taiwanese academic centres, specifically mentioning mobility programmes for students, PhD students and researchers, which have the potential to make these relations even stronger and deeper. Intensifying cooperation between the Jagiellonian University and Taiwanese universities should be one of the key issues after the COVID-19 pandemic, and indeed it is in line with Taiwan's growing interest in Central and Eastern Europe.

Prof. Jacek Popiel noted that the greatest contribution to the development of relations between the Jagiellonian University and Taiwanese academic centres is made by the Faculty of International and Political Studies and the Faculty of Philology, but other potential areas of collaboration include exact, natural and medical sciences, all of which are studied at the University. This means that students from Taiwan could pursue their education at virtually all university departments.
