Universities sign collaboration agreement

Israel’s Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) and Ben Gurion University of the Negev recently signed historic agreements with Morocco’s Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, seeking to promote academic and technological cooperation, reports i24 News.

According to HUJI President Professor Asher Cohen, the collaboration between the institutions will include joint research and collaborative degrees, innovation on a global scale, and the exchange of publications and academic materials. “We take pride in being one of the first Israeli universities to formalise a relationship with our esteemed Moroccan counterpart. We look forward to the many ways this collaboration will benefit our two countries and the region at large,” he added.

Israel and Morocco normalised diplomatic ties last year as part of the Abraham Accords, brokered by the administration of former United States president Donald Trump.
