UC Davis and Chinese University Agree To A New Joint Food Safety Research Center
Representatives from the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) and China’s Northwest Agricultural and Forestry University in Shaanxi signed an agreement last Wednesday to establish the Sino-US Joint Research Center for Food Safety in China. The agreement will be in effect for five years, during which both universities will conduct joint food safety research and development, concentrating on dairy safety and food traceability. Under the terms of the agreement, UC Davis will appoint the director for the research program, with the Chinese university providing funding for the center. The agreement will also offer students from both universities a chance to study in the foreign country.
