University of Tokyo: Division for Global Campus Initiatives International Strategy Group

UTokyo and UBC have been promoting research collaborations, and international exchanges between the two institutions, including the conclusion, in April 2017, of a tripartite agreement between the Max Planck Society (Germany), UBC and UTokyo, as well as international friendly matches between the UTokyo Baseball Team and the UBC Thunderbird, UBC’s baseball team. Also, President Gonokami was presented with UBC’s President’s Medal by President Ono in 2019 for his contributions to strengthening mutual collaborations in higher education internationally.
During today’s event, the various links between UTokyo and UBC were reviewed, through talks between the two presidents, researchers involved in various academic collaborations as well as the directors of baseball involved in the friendly matches.
At the end, President Gonokami presented, virtually, a commemorative shield to President Ono as a gesture of gratitude for all his support and effort in furthering the relations between UBC and UTokyo.
