October 21 -27, 2017
As of this year, it has been 60 years since Kyoto University and the Kingdom of Bhutan began their relationship. As a unique contribution to international service, Kyoto University has been serving as a bridge between Japan and Bhutan’s academic exchange, by working with the Kingdom of Bhutan on building equal partnerships in research, education and contributions to society. While focusing on GNH, these events welcome HRH Princess Ashi Sonam Dechan Wangchuck and Kyoto University professors (President Juichi Yamagiwa, et al.), to provide a platform where the future can be discussed between Bhutan and Kyoto University.
