Aim and scope of the visit
The aims for the proposed visit in relation to research and education are to
- provide opportunities for researchers and Ph.D. candidates to learn the research frontier in ground control strategy in seismically active mines,
- build a platform for researchers from both universities to share ongoing experiences and ideas,
- promote academic communication by giving courses and arranging seminars, and
- build collaboration to exchange researchers and students and cooperate to educate PhD students in mining engineering.
