Prospective students are usually unaware that, when choosing a university, it is worth finding out what kind of international relations it has established, what international mobility programmes and apprenticeships it can offer, and what foreign universities it has partnership agreements with: all that opens up broad opportunities for international studies and, simultaneously, for international careers.
KU as a strategic partner of universities of the Netherlands
On June 15, Klaipėda University (KU) signed an agreement of strategic partnership with two universities of the Netherlands: the Eindhoven University of Technology and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. The aim of the agreement is the cooperation of the universities in the scientific research on energy: cryogenic fuels, liquefied natural gas, and the development of the hybrid energy network. The universities will collaborate on technological, environmental, and economic issues related to the sustainable green use of those kinds of energy in the blue corridor of the Baltic Sea and to the development of new business opportunities.
KU is the only university in the Baltic countries that carries out a study programme Engineering of LNG Terminals and related research. Moreover, it is a partner of the Lithuanian LNG cluster and the Lithuanian LNG platform and has an LNG Competence Centre. It should be noted that Klaipėda has a well-developed LNG infrastructure: the FSRU Independence and contemporary laboratories in the Marine Research Institute of KU fit for advanced scientific research.
