In the seminar Prof Delwar Hossain said, the students did a tremendous job. They conducted research at the master’s level like these, which is unimaginable. I can assure you that this is unparallel to any institution of this sub-continent. 

ANSO collaborated with the objectives to establish a link and network with an International Alliance & scientific organization by enhancing education and research capability of the JU students and faculty members.  The collaboration creates opportunities for students and young faculties to complete postgraduate research MS/Ph.D. degrees at CAS & other ANSO-recognized Institutes with fully funded scholarships. As an approved ANSO member, JU ANSO Representative can recommend 2 MS & 2 Ph.D. researchers each year to pursue higher degrees at CAS or other Institutes in China.

Moreover, ANSO arranges exchange visits for students and faculties and organizes seminars, workshops & conferences for the faculties and students. It supports attaining SDGs using science, technology & innovation between research & educational institutes of the belt and road initiatives including JU.
