The first joint conference on Iran-Italy Scientific and Research Cooperation held on Wednesday in Tehran was attended by ministers of science from both sides.
Italian Minister of Education, University and Research Valeria Fedeli arrived in Tehran on Tuesday at the head of a 150-strong delegation comprising heads of universities, research centers, and companies from that country.
The conference began by signing a memorandum of understanding for scientific and academic cooperation, IRNA reported.
