Crist from London: Shoutout to FAU, FGCU



Brogan04 Ah, so that's why Lt. Gov.-turned-FAU-President Frank Brogan is in Europe on the trade mission with Gov. Charlie Crist.

FAU and Florida Gulf Coast have signed agreements with British research institutions to improve the universities' efforts in addressing global climate change and conservation -- a move Crist applauded in a written statement.

Brogan, former Lt. Gov under Jeb Bush, and representatives from the other research institutions just signed Memoranda of Understanding during a reception hosted by United Kingdom Deputy Foreign Minister Dr. Kim Howells.

"Florida's research universities are the heart of our technology innovation, and I applaud the international partnerships established here today," Governor Crist said.  "Talented scientists are developing high quality research that results in real-world applications, and collaboration can advance the work being done in Florida and around the world."
