  Semnan, Eszterházy Károly universities sign cooperation agreement

Presidents of Semnan University and the Hungarian Eszterházy Károly University signed a memorandum of understanding in the central city of Yazd last week for future academic cooperation.

Abbas Honarbakhsh-Raouf and Kálmán Liptai inked the document at Yazd University, a major research hub in central Iran, designated by the country’s Ministry of Science, Research and Technology as the international center for scientific cooperation with Hungary.

The agreement follows preliminary talks between the sides in Hungary earlier this month. It includes, inter alia, faculty/student exchange programs, joint research projects, resource sharing, joint training courses and workshops, and conference and seminar co-organization.

The signing ceremony was attended by Hossein Salar Amoli, Iran’s deputy science minister for international affairs, and László Palkovics, minister of state for higher education at Hungary’s Ministry of Human Capacities. The two signed an agreement to expand cooperation between the two ministries in the future.

Scientific cooperation between Iran and EU members was dealt a heavy blow for more than a decade as feud grew between the sides over Iran’s nuclear program. The signing of the international nuclear deal in 2015, however, has brought a period of relief from western-imposed sanctions against Iran, leaving the doors open for stronger scientific partnership. 

By last July, more than 42 European and Iranian universities had inked cooperation agreements, Salar Amoli was quoted as having said.
