Academic exchange meeting held in conjunction with the visit of Tzu Chi University of Science and Technology
April 7, 2023

On 7 April, a total of seven visitors, including the President and Dean/Directors of departments, from Tzu Chi University of Science and Technology (TCUST, Taiwan) visited us.
Since signing an interdivisional agreement with the School of Nursing at TCUST in 2013, there has been active exchange through joint research and student dispatches.
The ceremony was organised to further develop and enhance both universities, and included an introduction to recent developments and research presentations from both sides.

TCUST introduced research on ICT, including the joint development of inspection kits for home healthcare services with Hung Kai Precision Industry, and also expressed great interest in establishing a double degree programme with our Division.
From our side, presentations were made on 'Comprehensive community care and scientific technologies promoted by multi-professionals working together' (Prof Takeya) and 'Sleep research for the older people in the community' (Associate Prof Yamakawa).
The meeting was very fruitful, with a lively exchange of views on research activities and the research situation in both universities.
