Deputy Head of Mission, Belgian Embassy Visits Kanazawa University

On May 24, Ms. Elisa Castaldo, Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of Belgium in Japan visited Kanazawa University and had a meeting with Prof. Megumi Shimura, Vice President for International Affairs, and Mr. Hiroshi Ando, Executive Director of International Relations Department.  This is our 2nd time to welcome her on campus, with her last visit in September 2020. Ms. Castaldo is strongly concerned about our students’ international studies during the COVID-19 pandemic, and was glad to hear about our continuous active exchange with our partner universities in the Kingdom of Belgium, e.g., Ghent University and the Free University of Brussels. There were discussions about the scholarship offered by the French-Speaking Community of Belgium, the undertaking of DDP between Ghent university and KU, and other possibilities of further collaboration between institutions of higher education in the Kingdom of Belgium, and KU.
