To promote the high-quality development of Sino-Irish joint higher education initiatives and deepen top-level cooperation in higher education between China and Ireland, the Sino-Irish Alliance of Joint Education (Chinese Universities) has been jointly established by over 30 Chinese universities. Spearheaded by the Beijing University of Technology (BJUT), the Alliance was proposed by the China Education Association for International Exchange, an organization supervised by the Ministry of Education. On October 26th, the inauguration ceremony of the Sino-Irish Alliance of Joint Education and the Forum on Quality Development of Sino-Irish Joint Running of Schools took place.
Li Yi, Deputy Secretary of the Working Committee of Beijing Municipal Education Commission and Director of the Beijing Municipal Education Commission; Jiang Zeting, Secretary of CPC BJUT Committee; Li Yang, Deputy Director of the Academic Exchange and Research Department of the China Education Association for International Exchange; and Liu Minhua, Vice President of Beijing Technology and Business University, along with representatives of the Alliance's members, extended their congratulations on the establishment of the Alliance and delivered speeches during the ceremony.
During the inauguration ceremony, the person overseeing the relevant work presented an overview of the Alliance and, together with the attending leaders, officially launched the Alliance. Following the ceremony, the Forum on Quality Development of Sino-Irish Joint Running of Schools was held. Experts and scholars in the field of Sino-foreign cooperative education delivered insightful presentations and engaged in extensive and in-depth discussions on the theme.
Taking the establishment of the Alliance as an opportunity, with the focus on the high-quality development of the Beijing-Dublin International College as the anchor point, BJUT actively seeks to broaden new avenues of international cooperation. Its goal is to gather top-tier global resources, ensuring the high standard and quality advancement of international education. Through the consistent provision of an outstanding foreign education environment, BJUT strives to enhance the international influence of Beijing's education sector, propelling the capital city's development as an international exchange center. Collaborating with the Alliance's members, BJUT will further contribute to China's development as an educational powerhouse.
