Southeast Asian University Consortium for Graduate Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC)

The Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) between Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB) and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) was signed on 14 June 2013 at the IPB Darmaga Campus. Dr. Herry Suhardiyanto, Rector of IPB, conveyed that the said cooperation, which originally started with student exchange, would be strengthened along the theme of the ASEAN Economic Community. Moreover, the  MoC would be the basis for collaborative activities towards addressing food security, including advocacies to further develop agriculture in the countries of Southeast Asia.

In connection with the efforts on food security advocacy, Prof. Datuk Dr. Mohd Fauzi Hj Ramlan, UPM Vice Chancellor is scheduled for a 5-day meeting at IPB in September 2013, the result of which will be an important input for an ASEAN-level congregation.

In the area of scholarship, UPM suggested that IPB look into the Erasmus Mundus and the USA-Michigan research scholarship program.

It is also expected for IPB and UPM to finalize its Dual Degree Program soon. This will then enable students to receive graduate degrees at both academic institutions.
