Germany, IPB team up to rebuild Aceh
BOGOR: Germany's Goettingen University and the Bogor Agriculture Institute (IPB) are set to collaborate in an effort to rebuild devastated areas of North Sumatra and Aceh provinces.
Head of the IPB's international programs unit, Ma'mun Sarma, said on Friday that Goettingen University, with the help of the German government, had offered a helping hand for the rebuilding of these areas, particularly in the education sector.
Seven members of the German parliamentary committee overseeing science and technology have met with officials from the IPB to discuss the cooperation, Ma'mun said.
"The IPB, Goettingen University and Syah Kuala University in Aceh will immediately sign a Memorandum of Understanding in Germany to hammer out the details of the cooperation," Ma'mun said. --JP.
