Many professors from abroad were invited to participate in SKIPWISE, a Global Human Resource Development program at Chiba University

On March 2013, Professors, mainly from sister universities came to visit Matsudo Campus and Kashiwa Filed Center to discuss ways in which they can further deepen the relationships between all participating universities.


As a result, an agreement was made for academic exchange and cooperation between Chiba University's graduate school of Horticulture and Sheffield University in England plus an academic exchange and cooperation agreement was handed to the Deputy of President of King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi in Thailand.
