In 2004, ECNU signed a bilateral cooperation agreement with Humboldt-Universitat zu Berli, and the agreement was renewed in 2010. In September 2011, the delegation led by president of Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin visited ECNU with the invitation to attend ECNU’s 60th anniversary ceremony, and the newly established Intercultural Education and Communication Research Center, a joint research center founded by ECNU and Humboldt-Universitat zu Berli, was one of the several great achievements of that visit. Furthermore, the undergraduate students’ exchange program between the two sides was launched this year.
