On June 21, 2019, TMU hosted a Belgium delegation, consisting of Rector Luc Sels and Director An Descheemaeker from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) and Pro-Rector Dana Samson from Universite Catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain). The main purpose of this visit is to strengthen the existing relations and further explore potential collaboration among the three universities. Big Data in Health was identified as an area of common interest, given that all three institutions operate extensive networks of hospitals. And TMU College of Humanities and Social Science have also developed plans for research collaboration with UCLouvain in the field of cognitive neuroscience.

Other areas of shared interest include delivery of online teaching and dual/joint degree programs for both undergraduate and postgraduate education. Short-term exchange programs including Taiwan Experience Education Programs and medical elective, in particular, were identified as pioneer projects for future collaboration. With strong commitment to partnership development, students and faculty members from TMU, KU Leuven, and UCLouvain are expected to engage in strengthened joint initiatives in teaching and research activities in future.
