Université de Rennes 1 and Korea
The relationship between Korea and Université de Rennes 1 is relatively recent but has developed significantly over the last 5 years, most particularly in the fields of management and economics. The university currently has bilateral agreements with 5 Korean universities, including a double degree in management with Ajou University.
In research, the university cooperates with several institutions and is part of two international research groups (GDRI), Funmood and Namis within the Rennes Institute of Chemical Sciences. Both incoming and outgoing student mobility is growing thanks to cooperation agreements.
We very much welcome this agreement which opens the way to a promising future of new collaboration possibilities with Chung-Ang University.
