Speaking on the occasion, Pankaj Mohan said “India and Japan are ancient civilizations, bound by close cultural ties, and Nalanda played a crucial role in this civilizational dialogue. Since Nalanda University has the mandate to rediscover the threads of inter-Asian connection, our MoU with Kanazawa University holds immense significance”.

Mori Masahide said in his brief speech, “Kanazawa University has been designated by the Japanese Ministry of Education as a “Super Global University”, and as Nalanda University shares this vision and goal, the MoU would pave the way for an enduring partnership between the two institutions.”

K Chandramoorthi, the officiating Registrar of Nalanda University said, “we are pleased to collaborate with the Kanazawa University, a 50-year-old National University of Japan whose roots can be traced to 1862”.

Kanazawa University offers various undergraduate and graduate courses and has three colleges and 16 schools with about 11,000 students including 350 international students.
