International Collaboration to Gather Data on SDG and Research, Review Comparative Approaches

The University has recently formalized a mutually beneficial partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding with Western Sydney University (WSU). The primary objective of this collaborative effort is to jointly embark on a wide range of scientific and academic endeavors aimed at advancing Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDGs) and establishing exemplary international practices in this field. This symbiotic relationship capitalizes on CUTM’s strong commitment to the SDG 2030 agenda while also tapping into its distinctive engagement with local communities, which serves as a valuable resource for gathering pertinent data and conducting surveys as part of research and training initiatives focusing on areas such as social entrepreneurship, healthcare-related issues, and paramedical education. As a result, this collaborative venture not only contributes to the realization of SDG 3, which pertains to health and well-being, and SDG 10, which is centered around reducing inequalities but also effectively addresses the objectives outlined in SDG 4.

In a similar vein, an analogous Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been established with ICD Business School in France 2022, paving the way for the reciprocal exchange of students and faculty members between the two institutions. This partnership aims to foster collaborative research initiatives, creating a platform for the examination and comparison of various approaches in pursuit of identifying and adopting best practices to effectively address the challenges associated with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 4 and 9. Through this cooperative framework, these two esteemed institutions will pool their expertise and resources to make meaningful strides in the realms of education, research, and innovation while aligning with the aspirations encapsulated in the SDGs.

The University, in partnership with Curtin University and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, hosts Global North and South conferences since 2021. These gatherings serve as platforms for gathering worldwide data on SDGs and for discussions on developing national and international best practices for addressing the SDGs. The conferences facilitate the exchange of insights and experiences, fostering a deeper understanding of effective SDG solutions. In essence, they drive progress toward sustainable development by connecting experts and stakeholders globally and promoting the implementation of best practices.
