The agreement also envisages joint work on the development and improvement of the teaching process, with a special focus on new study programmes and curricula. Furthermore, the two universities will be working on joint projects, dedicated courses, and special academic programmes. Naturally, it is important to emphasize that the plan is to also organize joint conferences,
meetings, and lifelong and professional training programmes.

Technology Chen Jianyu, Deputy Director of Collaborative Research Centre Chen Bing, and Deputy Director of Shanghai Intelligent Medical Devices and Active Health Collaborative Innovation Centre Zhou Liang.

The establishment of the Innovation Centre for International Technology Transfer in Biomedicine was initiated in November last year when a delegation from the Shanghai University of Medicine and Health Sciences paid a working visit to our university. The details of the wording of this agreement signed for a five-year period and the establishment of the Centre
itself were agreed upon when the delegation of the University of Banja Luka, led by the rector, Prof. Gajanin, returned the visit to China in December 2023.
