IGP’s Head of Department, Egil Tjåland, welcomed a delegation from the China University of Petroleum Bejing earlier today. Professor Zhang Laibin, President of CUPB, led the delegation. The visit was part of a larger trip to NTNU, including meetings with the Department of Marine Technology. The delegation has also met with NTNU’s leadership, and a memorandum of understanding has been signed between President Zhang and Bjarne Foss, Pro-Rector for Research at NTNU. CUPB is first-tier national university of China, and focuses on education and research within both traditional energy fields, and new outreach to sustainable and renewable energy. We look forward to increased cooperation between our two institutions.
