JAPOLAC Coordinates an Online Meeting between Chiba University and the University of Santiago, Chile
JAPOLAC coordinated an online meeting between Chiba University (CU) and the University of Santiago, Chile (USACH). The primary purpose of this meeting was to discuss the schedule and content for a Short Online Program (SOP), which is to be delivered by USACH to CU students in Spring 2024.
This SOP is designed to encompass a variety of courses, such as a General Overview of Chile; Insights into the Production of Copper, Lithium, and Iodine; an Examination of Chile’s Thriving Winery Industry; an Introduction to Chile’s Salmon Industry, and a Review of Chile’s Forestry Industry.
JAPOLAC’s short online programs serve as a valuable conduit for imparting practical knowledge about Latin American and Caribbean countries (LAC) to Japanese university students. The overarching aim is to inspire and encourage these students to consider visiting and pursuing further studies in the LAC region.
Among the core objectives of JAPOLAC is the active promotion of academic exchanges between Japanese universities and those in Latin America and the Caribbean. Simultaneously, the organization endeavors to expand the academic and research network between Japan and the LAC region.
