Professor David FitzPatrick, President, presented the awards on behalf of TU Dublin. During his visit to the University, Professor FitzPatrick and Professor Qiao Xu, President of Nanjing Tech University, held a bilateral meeting at which the two universities signed a Memorandum of Understanding to extend the existing collaboration to include Development and Training of Doctoral students.
