On June 29, 2015, the University of Novi Sad (UNS), Serbia, conferred an honorary doctorate degree to Assoc. Prof. Dr. Chusak Limsakul, President of Prince of Songkla University (PSU), in recognition of the long-standing and fruitful collaboration between Prince of Songkla University and the University of Novi Sad. As President Chusak told the audience at the ceremony, the 14-year long relationship between PSU and UNS started when delegates from the PSU Faculty of Engineering visited UNS and signed an agreement of academic cooperation in 2001. One year later, the 1st Engineering Conference between the UNS Faculty of Technical Science and the PSU Faculty of Engineering followed, with Dr. Chusak as Dean of the Faculty of Engineering. Cooperation between the two universities progressed rapidly by providing numerous student and staff exchange opportunities with the support of the two universities' administration. From then on, the relationship has quickly expanded to other faculties, including the Faculty of Science, Faculty of Natural Resources and Faculty of Arts. Joint research in the fields of engineering and biology between faculties of the two universities is one of the hallmarks of this fruitful academic collaboration.
