Memorandum of Understanding

08 December 2017

signed between the University of Canterbury and Kassel University regarding Human-Animal Studies

An co-operation agreement between the University of Canterbury and Germany's Kassel University has just been signed to facilitate collaboration between UC's New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies and Kassel's Tier-Mensch-Gesellschaft (Humans, Animals and Society) research cluster. The two research centres have committed to pursuing exchanges and collaborations in teaching and research. The first exchanges will take place in 2017, when Dr André Krebber comes to UC, and Associate Professor Annie Potts and Associate Professor Philip Armstrong travel to Kassel, as part of the Erasmus+ programme, a European Union programme to fund international scholarly exchanges.
