Cooperation programs are carried out within the framework of the mechanism. The Cooperation Program focuses on ten areas including digital education, healthcare and agricultural development. Inter-university cooperation between multiple universities is carried out on joint scientific research, faculty and student exchanges, and talent cultivation.
