WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -
UNC Wilmington has established a partnership with a university in Brest, France.
UNCW officials recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a collaboration with L’Université de Bretagne Occidentale.
According to UNCW Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Aswani Volety, the memorandum formalizes a partnership between UNCW's marine science programs and UBO's European Institute of Marine Science.
“Both institutions have tremendous expertise in various disciplines of marine science and the collaboration brings faculty expertise in multiple complimentary areas to address scientific questions on a regional and global scale,” Volety said.
While the partnership is with the marine science program at UNCW, Volety said the intention is to expand to other areas where it is mutually beneficial.
