Zhejiang Ocean University (ZJOU) in Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province, joined the Sino-Russian University Alliance on Oct 18, local media reported.

The news was announced at a seminar on Sino-Russian cooperation in running schools and the second meeting of the alliance, which was held at Jiangsu Normal University in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province.

Wang Jinbao, director of the International Exchange and Cooperation Department of ZJOU, was invited to deliver a report on cooperation between ZJOU and Russian universities.

Tang Zhenfu of the China Education Association for International Exchange gave a speech on quality guarantees for school-running cooperation between China and other countries.
