OU, French Research Universities Sign MOU to Advance Cooperation
The University of Oklahoma has signed an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) to increase international cooperation on weather observations and radar technologies. According to announcement by OU’s VPRP office, the agreement “…brings together radar and meteorology experts from the University of Oklahoma through its Advanced Radar Research Center (ARRC) and the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences with scientists from the Laboratoire Atmosphères, Observations Spatiales (LATMOS), a French research laboratory of the Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Université Paris-Saclay, Sorbonne Université, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers.”
Via the agreement, collaboration is planned “through visiting faculty programs and joint student programs such as summer schools on radar technologies, international exchange programs and supervision for doctoral candidates.” Together, the universities plan to support the planned Atmosphere Observing System (AOS) by NASA and other projects.
International cooperation is an important part of our program, and we’re looking forward to seeing this work accomplish much!
