NOTE: Before you begin the online application process, you must find a Tokyo Tech professor and confirm that he has agreed to become your academic supervisor. You must include the name of this teacher when you complete the application. (Only professors, professors and university professors have the right to be scientific tutors.) In addition to international cooperation, coordinated by specific externally funded programmes, the CEU maintains a number of relations with national and international universities and institutions with the aim of developing joint research and education activities and promoting exchanges between professors and students. These relationships are formally recognized by the signing of cooperation agreements. The scope of the activities carried out under the agreement is determined by the means regularly available for the type of cooperation of the two institutions and by the financial assistance that can be obtained from both institutions from external sources. There is no specific financial commitment from any of the parties to the agreement. The cooperation agreement sets out the main conditions and obligations of the parties. It is the document that governs cooperation. The Memorandum of Understanding is generally used as the basis for the development of the cooperation agreement. One of the keys to the development of a successful cooperation agreement is to ensure that there is good cooperation between the lawyer who develops the agreement and the person responsible for the cooperation. There are a number of risks that a lawyer can mitigate without any negative assistance from the institution, but the fact remains that the cooperation agreement will be most effective when it is developed taking into account this specific cooperation.
It is for this reason that it is almost never appropriate to use a trade agreement for international cooperation. There are a plethora of issues that need to be addressed in the cooperation agreement. Each cooperation will have its own characteristics and therefore its own risks. This is why some or all of the following questions could expose institutions to significant responsibility. However, the following themes will always be of the utmost importance. Who do you sign contracts with? How long do you support and how can you terminate the contract prematurely if necessary? Who`s doing what? Who`s paying what? What are the standards (for example. (B) academic, health and safety, regulatory and legal) to which the parties must comply and can the agreement be denounced if they are not respected? The agreement, involving the School of Engineering and Architecture at the University of Bologna and the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, is another step towards the ongoing commitment to internationalization and excellence in our studies. SPbPU has a long tradition of working with universities, institutes of technology, higher education institutions with similar strategies and objectives and with complementary characteristics and strengths for mutual interest.
