Inari Agriculture University in northern China has just launched a new program aimed at increasing its relevance to the Chinese agricultural landscape.
In the first program of its kind, the institute will allow students to participate in a project called the “Agriculture Map” and participate in an agronomic analysis.
The program will also enable the institute to develop a new model for international agronomy.
“Inari is a university for the world’s knowledge and the world is our best resource,” Inari president Li Shiyu said.
“Our research aims to help the world learn more about the region, to understand the region and the country, and to be part of the Chinese agro-environment.”
The initiative is part of an effort by Inari to promote itself to the international market.
In a recent interview with ABC News, Inari CEO Yuxiang Li said the institute is working to make it more globally accessible and accessible to the public.
Inari has been operating since 2002.
The institute will offer two courses this semester: the first one will be in English and will cover the basics of China’s agriculture, while the second will be a three-week program in Chinese.
In 2018, the Inari Global Institute for Agricultural Innovation launched its China Agricultural Research Program (CBAP), an online-only course for farmers in China.
The new program is part and parcel of a broader effort by the institute, which aims to enhance the university’s international relevance.
In order to meet its global goal, Inarius program is also expected to include several collaborations with international universities.
For example, a recent partnership with the University of Texas in Austin will include an in-depth agricultural analysis and data visualization workshop, which is expected to cover the development of Chinese agricultural technology, Li Shuyu said in the interview.
“We hope that the Chinese university will continue to grow and grow its relevance in a world where most universities are not well-known or are in a poor condition,” Li said.
Inami researchers have already used the CBAP program to create an online map of China, which was released in 2017.
In an effort to build its reputation, the Chinese institute is also planning to establish a new institute for China, the Shanghai Agricultural Research Institute.
“For a long time, we thought that China was the most neglected region, and we thought of opening an institute there, but it was never decided,” Li Shuji said.
According to Li, the institutes aim to provide an international perspective for the development and research of Chinese agriculture, and it will also provide an opportunity for the Chinese government to work with the university to promote its agriculture.
“The institute is an investment for the country,” he said.
