Alongside a delegation from the Iranian MSRT and other officials from several prominent Iranian universities, Dr Hamid Nadgaran visited Switzerland to discuss matters of mutual interest for furthering academic collaboration between the two societies. Dr Hossein Salar-Amoli, who is currently in charge of international academic collaboration at the Iranian MSRT, pointed out the 16 project proposed and the fact that this academic collaboration will definitely be worthwhile for all sides if we all accept to play our part in a positive and useful manner.

The commencement of the program was with the speech given by the Swiss Minister for Science, Research and Technology, where he addressed the current situation of academic and scientific collaboration between the two countries and stated that there seems to be lots of eagerness from both sides and this would hopefully pave the way for an effective academic bond between both nations.
