Visit of Parliamentary State Secretary of German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to Al-Quds University

 

On Wednesday, 18 June 2014, the Parliamentary State Secretary to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Mr. Thomas Rachel, and a high ranking delegation of ministerial representatives and German cooperation partners paid a visit to Al-Quds University.

 

The visit took place following the first meeting of the steering committee appointed to implement the recently signed Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in Education, Science and Research between the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of the Federal Republic of Germany (BMBF) and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). He was received by the President of Al-Quds University, Dr. Sari Nusseibeh.

 

Mr. Rachel underlined the potential of scientific cooperation to promote mutual respect and political cooperation. He discussed the conditions for teaching and research under the current political situation with graduates from German universities, who are nowadays faculty members and active researchers at Al-Quds University. He was in particular interested to hear about the state of affairs regarding joint research projects with Israeli institutions.

 

The German alumni stressed their interest to intensify cooperation with German higher education and research institutions, which can be based on a successful history of joint projects since the mid nineties. Nowadays, the development of research institutions and of a research culture among academics in Palestine should be brought into focus.
