Changzhou University group tours CSU

18 DECEMBER 2012

Delegates from Changzhou University in Jiangsu, China, were impressed when they visited Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga on a recent fact finding mission. Head of Campus at CSU in Wagga Wagga, Mr Adrian Lindner welcomed the group on Friday 14 December, telling them CSU was interested in developing a long-term collaborative relationship with Changzhou University, located about 200 kilometres northwest of Shanghai. “Changzhou University has a fruit and table grape growing program and the delegation was interested in how we have developed our wine science and agricultural science practices,” Mr Lindner said. While at CSU, the group toured the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, the EH Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation, as well as CSU’s School of Agricultural and Wine Sciences and the new National Life Science Hub (NaLSH). Mr Lindner said delegation members showed a lot of interest in undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, professional development for academic staff and research programs for a new School of Food Safety. “It’s early days yet but the group was impressed with Charles Sturt University’s approach and results for teaching and researching agricultural production and specifically how they could develop a wine tourism industry.”
