In a visit of DrChristian Hülshörster, Director of the Scholarship Programmes Southern Hemisphere, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and representatives of the DAAD office in Tehran and German Embassy to Tehran, to the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (MSRT), expansion of scientific cooperation with Iranian universities were discussed.

The German delegates had a meeting with Prof. Salar Amoli, the Acting Minister for International Scientific Cooperation and his deputy, where both sides emphasised on the importance of maintaining and intensifying the long-term science and technology cooperation, to reach a new dimension of cooperation via a fixed infrastructure. In line with this ‘participation of MSRT representative in the DAAD selection committee’, ‘providing sabbatical leave opportunities to DAAD alumnus’ and ‘signing MoU for future cooperation’ were discussed.

It is worth noting that the DAAD delegates have visited Iran, along with a group of referees from Iran and Germany to conduct the selection interviews for the DAAD applications.
