Luo Hongbin, dean of Sino-French Engineer School, had a friendly conversation with Professor Borbalan, and introduced in detail the educational philosophy, characteristics and efforts of the school in the training of international engineers. Borbalan highly appreciated the school's mechanism of international cooperative education and students' learning progress, and expressed his willingness to carry out future cooperation and exchanges.


Hu Yong, vice dean of the School of New Media Art and Design, introduced the development history of the school and the exhibition of works of the "Feng Ru Cup" design to Professor Borbalan. Borbalan showed great interest in several works, and exchanged ideas with the students in the studio on the creation of the works. He looked forward to the multi-integrated development of art, science and technology, education and culture, and the cooperation between China and France in the future.

In the exchange with Professor Ma Yonghong, chief expert of the School of Humanities and Public Administration and the Beijing Research Base for Graduate Education Reform and Development of Philosophy and Social Sciences, the two sides conducted in-depth discussions on the international and domestic experience of broad science and education integration and the theoretical value of knowledge production mode IV. They also discussed the possibility of continuing to carry out scientific research cooperation and joint training of doctoral students by relying on their research platforms.
