University Cities - Tasmania's future

Published 20 May 2017

During May the Vice-Chancellor led a senior executive mission to Europe accompanied by the Lord Mayor and Mayors of Tasmania’s three key University cities – Hobart, Launceston and Burnie.

The mission allowed the University and the Tasmanian cities that it has a substantial impact on, to look at the relationships other institutions around the world have developed with City Councils. The full delegation visited the exemplar University cities of Freiburg in Germany, the Brno in the Czech Republic  and Cambridge in the  United Kingdom and attended the Going Global Conference in London.

During the study tour the Vice-Chancellor (Global) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mendel University.  The MoU was signed on 20th May, 2017 in Brno, Czech Republic.
