In the framework of the “German Science Day” organised by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Teheran and Isfahan, HHU and the University of Isfahan agreed on closer cooperation. In future, the two universities will be aiming at more collaboration above all in the natural sciences.

At the invitation of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, HHU had presented itself in Iran together with scientific organisations and other universities strong in research from the end of February until the beginning of March. The research work it showcased there met with keen interest on the part of potential Iranian cooperation partners.
