This batch of epidemic prevention materials jointly donated by Roam Technology, a well-known enterprise in Limburg Province, and NEOVIA (Hainan) Co., Ltd. will be allocated by the GDUT hospital for campus epidemic prevention and control.The donation came at the right time of universities’ resumption in Guangdong, which is very conducive to the epidemic prevention and control of GDUT.
Limburg Province and Guangdong Province have carried out extensive cooperation since they became sister provinces in 2015. Herman Reynders, former governor of Limburg Province, visited GDUT in October 2015 and November 2019 respectively. Since the signing of the memorandum of cooperation between GDUT and the University of Hasselt in Belgium in December 2016, we have actively promoted the "joint doctoral program ". The project was officially launched in 2019, and the two universities jointly recruit, manage and train doctoral students.
