University of Melbourne and Sunway University, Malaysia sign MOU

The University of Melbourne and Sunway University, Malaysia, recently celebrated signing a Memorandum of Understanding between the two Universities, promoting our working together in areas of mutual interest.

This celebration took place during the 3rd International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics (IFARP-3), which ran online from 24-25 February and featured participants from 21 different countries.

Professor Moira O’Bryan, Dean of Science, spoke at the event to congratulate the universities on the new MOU, particularly noting how impressive this signing was having happened despite the restrictions of COVID-19. She is pictured here with Professor Christopher Chantler of the School of Physics.

IFARP-3 was a focused event of the Centre for Applied Physics and Radiation Technologies at Sunway University and the Department of Physics University of Melbourne, which also celebrated the International Radiation Physics Society in its 35th year of existence. This event also recognised the considerable advances made in radiation sciences over the past several decades.
