An AIMS delegation visited Durham University for a signing ceremony and meetings to initiate a new AIMS ForExcellence partnership. Following the ceremony, a well-attended open forum was held to provide interested Durham faculty and students with details on AIMS and the partnership. Over the last few years, Durham faculty have taught at AIMS centres and the University has hosted AIMS alumni in its programs.
The new partnership will help to more firmly establish these ongoing relationships and, in addition to Durham providing a financial contribution to AIMS as part of the agreement, the expectation is that the partnership will lead to a broadening and deepening of academic interactions between the organisations.
