On September, 19, 2016, a delegation of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki led by the rector and his closest associates, the vice-rectors paid an official visit to St. Kliment Ohridski University in Bitola.
The purpose of this visit was signing a bilateral cooperation agreement signed by both rectors prof. dr. Sasho Korunovski and prof. dr. Pericles Mitkas. Before this agreement became official, the Universities had developed partial, academic and individual cooperation. Signing of this agreement provides larger framework for realization of numerous joint academic forms of cooperation, student and staff mobility, inter-institutional exchange, joint project participation etc.
Besides the academic, this bilateral agreement strengthens the cultural relations between the two cities of Bitola and Thessaloniki.
This agreement coincides with the commitment of UKLO to intensify the bilateral cooperation with higher education institutions in the wider region.
