New Agreement of Cooperation and Exchange between the University of Arkansas and TU Graz

Prof. Andy Proctor from the Department of Food Science at University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, spent the fall semester of the 2015-16 program year as the Fulbright-NAWI Graz Visiting Professor in the Natural Sciences. This Fulbright award is jointly sponsored by the Technical University Graz and the Karl Franzens University Graz to enhance collaboration between these two institutions in the natural sciences (Naturwissenschaften, hence the acronym NAWI). Professor Proctor and his combined teaching and research project, "Integrating Basic and Applied Food Chemistry," were well received in Graz and led to fruitful discussions between the TU Graz and the University of Arkansas about institutionalizing more extensive collaboration and cooperation in the future. One of the outcomes of Prof. Proctor’s Fulbright award is a collaborative agreement between the University of Arkansas and TU Graz to promote joint research and bilateral student mobility in the food sciences that was signed in Graz on June 22. Fulbright Austria is proud to be associated with these partners and this outcome! Another outcome of this agreement was a summer program, in which, according to a press release, "Food science students from the U of A's Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, as well as students from other countries, participated in an innovative two-week short course, Food Science and Culinary Arts to Maximize Food Quality, at the Technical University of Graz in Austria for U.S. and European students during the summer.
