The University of Bath and Koç University renew MoU.

The University has recently renewed the Memorandum of Understanding with leading Turkish research institution Koç University. The original MoU was signed in 2015 and has led to a range of activities including Healthcare workshops with colleagues from the Centre for Healthcare Innovation and Improvement (CHI2) and offering summer school opportunities to Bath students.

In 2017, the partnership with Koç gave opportunity for Bath’s Professor Christos Vasilakis, Director of the research Centre for Healthcare Innovation & Improvement (CHI2), and his colleagues Profs. Evrim Didem Günes and Lerzan Örmeci at Koç University in Istanbul, to run a workshop for 25 early career and more senior researchers from the UK and Turkey to explore innovative decision-making tools to pressing challenges in health care planning and management.

Attendees of workshop run by University of Bath and Koch academics.

Under the renewed MoU the School of Management hopes to widen existing links with Koç University as a partner in the new 'Centre for Smart Warehousing and Logistics Systems’ headed by Vaggelis Giannikas.
