King Saud University has signed a historic memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the University of Tokyo in order to strengthen academic collaboration in physics, chemistry, and earth sciences.

The first university founded in Saudi Arabia, King Saud University has almost 40,000 students and is well known for its medical program. Through scholarship, it is making a mark in blockchain research too.

The MoU was signed by the Acting Rector of King Saud University, Dr. Abdullah Al-Salman, and the President of the University of Tokyo, Dr. Teruo Fujii, in the presence of the Director of Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Center for Future Science and Technology, Dr. Hiroaki Aihara.

This collaboration marks a major milestone in fostering future partnerships between the two universities. Further, this agreement is a pivotal component of King Saud University’s new strategic plan and forward-looking vision, reflecting its significant transformations.

The Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Center, based at the University of Tokyo, will play a crucial role in enhancing and advancing this cooperation, as per the statement.

Earlier this month, King Saud University entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for academic collaboration with IMC Krems University of Applied Sciences, a leading institution renowned for its focus on tourism, hospitality, and business studies.

This MoU is aligned with Saudi Vision 2030 and the aspirations of His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to position King Saud University as a global leader among universities by 2030.

These partnerships serve as catalysts for achieving the overarching vision, which stands as a cornerstone of the university’s commitment to shaping the future of generations within the Kingdom.
