This agreement is the result of sustained efforts by the two institutions to deepen exchange on the research front as evidenced by the co-hosting of an international conference by Ritsumeikan Asia-Japan Research Organization and Cornell University Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.

With this agreement in place, Ritsumeikan will take part in research exchange centered on Meridian 180, an international research network headquartered at Cornell University.

At the signing ceremony, President of Ritsumeikan University and Director of Ritsumeikan Asia-Japan Research Organization Mikio Yoshida gave a greeting in which he expressed his intention to bring Ritsumeikan's education and research even closer to a global-standard level by participating in Meridian 180 and other global research networks.
