On Wednesday 4 December the vice-rector of the Sholokhov Moscow State University for the Humanities and the director of its Russian Institute of Advanced Studies visited Leiden University. The delegation signed a Memorandum of Understanding with dean Wim van den Doel to further collaboration in the fields of student exchange and scholarship.
The Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, professor Wim van der Doel, and Vice Rector Dr. Dennis Yarygin of Sholokhov Moscow State University for the Humanities signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in the areas of student exchange and research collaboration. The two Russian delegates, Dr. Dennis Yarygin and Mr. Rustem Gibadulin came to Leiden to discuss areas of potential cooperation between Sholokhov University and Leiden University in the future, under this new MOU.
