Currently, KFU has cooperation ties with 38 Chinese universities and is a home for 1,404 Chinese students. Yantai has joined this list. The memorandum was signed by vice-rectors Dmitry Pashin and Song Zhongmin.
“The memorandum will stimulate both parties to seek points of joint interest. It includes stipulations about cooperative research,” explained Counsellor Latypov.
