A 36-member delegation comprising representative from 22 European countries arrived in Tehran on Sunday for a three-day visit.

The delegation attended a meeting with education officials to expand academic and scientific cooperation and took part in a two-day educational workshop hosted by University of Tehran, Mehr News Agency reported.  

“The European Union has plans to expand technological cooperation with Iran,” said Peter Droll, in charge of Innovation Union and European Research Area in the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Department, on the sidelines of the meeting, which was held on Monday.

The two-day workshop, which ended on Tuesday, was attended by more 100 administrative staff of universities in Tehran. One of the key topics of discussion was the conduction of joint research projects under the European Union’s Jean Monnet program, which aims at stimulating teaching, research and reflection in the field of European integration studies at the level of higher education institutions within and outside the European Community.

Iran and the EU have cooperated successfully on student/teacher transfer programs and we are hoping to see further collaboration in the areas of technology and innovation, he said.
