Italian Science Delegation Arrives

An Italian science delegation has arrived in Tehran to meet Iran's Minister of Science, Research and Technology Mohammad Farhadi this week during a three-day visit to Tehran.

According to Hossein Salar-Amoli, deputy science minister for international affairs, the delegation is headed by Italian Minister of Education Stefania Giannini who is accompanied by presidents of Rome and Trieste universities, Mehr News Agency reported.

Also, officials from the Italian Association of Science and Technology Parks, which is the Italian national network of scientific and technological parks, along with the head of Italian Department for Universities and of higher education establishments in art and music are in the entourage.

The Italians are also scheduled to hold meetings with Iran’s Health Minister Seyyed Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi, Minister of Education Ali Asghar Fani and Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Satari.

Salar-Amoli noted that the meetings would examine the technological capacity of both nations to find new avenues for boosting cooperation in scientific areas.

He noted that Iran's scientific progress has attracted Asian, European and the Middle East countries to bolster bilateral ties.

 Science delegations from Japan, Germany and Chile have visited Tehran in the past few weeks.

Earlier in August, the Iranian science minister voiced his willingness to boost scientific collaboration with other countries by undertaking professor and student exchange programs, holding joint scientific courses and, if necessary, establishing foreign university branches in Iran, including in free zones.
