PROMOTING academic collaboration in environmental research is important as it deals with sustainable development of any country in the world.

A memorandum of understanding that was signed during the International Conference for Renewable Energy and Climate Change at USP yesterday would promote academic collaboration in education and in social and scientific research activities between USP and Keio University in Japan.

USP professor John Bythell said the MOU was on mutlimedia database and data mining research laboratory and ubiquitous computing research laboratory and environmental policy studies laboratory, graduate school of media and governance.

Prof Bythell said the agreement would help USP conduct a number of environmental researches that would help Fiji and other Pacific Island countries in sustainable development.

The MOU will result in both parties exploring collaboration in education, including online and to exchange graduate students for the purposes of advanced training and empirical research.
