CBI member Nottingham Trent University and Chongqing University in southwestern China recently formed a new partnership for collaborative research and staff and student visits.
The agreement was arranged through Nottingham Trent University's School of Education, and three professors from Chongqing University recently visited Nottingham to finalise the partnership.
Rob Dransfield, Senior Lecturer at the School of Education, said, "This partnership has huge potential, involving not only on-going collaboration in research projects but also visits by staff and students from Chongqing University to identify approaches to carrying out this research. There is also scope for reciprocal visits from Nottingham Trent University academics to advise on research projects."
Dr. Gill Scott, Dean of the School of Education, said, "This agreement will further develop an already successful relationship with Chongqing University, an important Chinese university with a growing reputation for first-class research. It will offer an additional international dimension to the experiences of staff and students at both universities."
Professor Hong Hu from Chongqing University said, "Chongqing University is an international university which is looking outwards to develop research collaborations. We're looking forward to working closely with academics at Nottingham Trent University, and we're particularly interested in the research currently being carried out in the fields of sports education and sports science, which fits closely with some of the issues we are currently exploring in relation to nutrition, exercise, and intellectual development in children and young people."
