Prof. Dr. Attila Fábián Rector, Dr. Tibor Alpár PhD and Prof. Dr. Ferenc Lakatos PhD Vice-Rectors and Director of International Affairs Dr. habil. Zoltán Szabó PhD MBA had greeted them.
The main objectives of both visits were strengthening our international relationships and embracing cross-border cooperations. In the case of the Indonesian delegation, these were complemented by further discussions on the Pre-Doctoral Bridging Programme and by a visit to the Human and Natural Resources Research Centre.
These diplomacy visits are crucial parts of the international strategy of the University of Sopron and give a great basis to networking, market positioning and therefore, more successful student recruitment.
