Twinning Project

Twinning Project partnership extended

That partnership has now been extended to 2021.

The UPNG-JCU Twinning Partnership began in 2015 as a three-year project, and was aimed at building teaching capacity and supporting collaborative research in Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the broader Asia Pacific Region.

“We’re excited to continue this partnership, with ongoing support from the Australian Government,” JCU project director Dr Jennifer Gabriel said.
