The University of Silesia will enter into cooperation with the University of Calcutta. The bilateral agreement between the Universities will be signed on 10th May 2017 during IX European Economic Congress, which will take place in the International Conference Center in Katowice on 10th – 12th May.
Such agreement will enable the universities to conduct joint research activities and projects, study programmes, and academic mobility.
The University of Calcutta will enter into cooperation with two Polish universities: University of Silesia in Katowice and Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice. The agreements will be signed by Vice-Rectors of the universities: Prof. Ashutosh Ghosh (University of Calcutta), Prof. Tomasz Pietrzykowski (University of Silesia) and Prof. Marek Pawełczyk (Silesian University of Technology). The idea of forming such an agreement occurred in January 2017 during the Bengali Bengal Global Business Summit in Calcutta, where the region of Silesia was invited as a honorary guest.
The guests will also participate in the meeting with representatives of Honorary Consulate of Poland in Calcutta (Mr. Joydeep Roy), Marshal Office of the Silesian Voivodship (Mr. Aleksander Kotulecki).
