MOUs: A Kyoto Protocol?

March 2009
New England Journal of Higher Education;Spring2009, Vol. 23 Issue 5, p31
The article presents information on Kyoto University's (KU) model for memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreements. It notes that KU is able to establish international links with the view of aligning these with its core mission. The global links that KU has with tier-one colleges and universities are usually formalized after three or four years of productive collaboration on research projects. It cites that a good example of the KU policy was demonstrated with the launch of the KU International Symposium series in 2001.
