Chairman Minniti also met with H.E. the Minister of Education, Dr. Hamad bin Mohammed Al Al-Sheikh. During the meeting, they discussed possible collaboration between Saudi universities and Med-Or Foundation to enhance joint training opportunities for the exchange of global skills and experiences. They also considered the possibility of promoting scholarships offered by the Foundation to talented Saudi students for a master’s degree in Italy.
The meeting also covered arrangements for cooperation for the setting up of an Institute of Arab Studies promoted by Med-Or Foundation, the first institute of its kind in Italy. The purpose is to launch many initiatives in the fields of culture, research, and scientific training through a new and unique entity: a bridge to convey ideas and projects in partnership with academic research institutions, and a hub to promote full integration between the industrial and research worlds.
