On 29th June 2018, Slovak University of Agriculture welcomed distinguished delegation from Indonesia. The main aim of the visit was to sign the Memorandum on Cooperation between IPB and Slovak University of Agriculture. The Memorandum was signed by the rector of Slovak Agricultural University in Nitra, Dr.h.c. Prof. Ing. Peter Bielik, PhD., and the rector of Bogor Agricultural University, Dr. Arif Satria.
During the meeting, the Rector of Slovak University of Agriculture elaborated the university’s partnership with Indonesia and its universities to show his willingness in expanding the cooperation by working with IPB – one of the prestigious universities in Indonesia. Mutual discussion about the possibilities of cooperation was enriched by the attendance of Ing.

The introduction of breeding program in Indonesia may open fresh research opportunities since it is probably the kind that Slovak University of Agriculture is looking for.
