The new year 2014 started with the first visit of Professor Salvatore Daniele (Director of the UNIVE Department of Molecural Sciences and Nanosystems – DSMN & Scientist in Charge for Bir Al-Nas).
On the occasion of Prof. Salvatore Daniele’s visit (15-19 January 2014) we had a meeting with the President of the University of Sfax, Prof. Ezzeddine Bouassida, aimed at introducing Ca’ Foscari University and evaluating the possibility of signing a Memorandum of Understanding between the two institutions. This agreement will facilitate the exchange of students, researchers, professors and administrative staff and pave the way for a fruitful collaboration in the long-term.
In addition we also met Prof. Mohamed Jmaiel, Director of the National Engineering School of Sfax (ENIS), who warmly welcomed the presence of an international post-doc under the Marie Curie People actions.
During the week we also had the opportunity to visit the different laboratories of ENIS, discovering many interesting research activities performed by local scientists. Among the others, the Laboratory of Radio-Analysis and Environment (LRAE), directed by Prof. Kamel Zouari, the Bir Al-Nas scientist in charge of the outgoing host institution.
