Belarusians have been gaining acquaintance with the experience of leading Swiss institutions of higher education in the spheres of science, humanities and technical studies. Direct contacts are being established between our two countries’ universities, with student exchange programmes set up alongside university research.
The delegation visited the Swiss National Foundation and held talks with the State Secretary for Swiss Education and Research, Mauro Dell’Ambrogio, and with the Secretary General of the Swiss Rectors’ Conference, Mathias Stauffacher. Our rectors and pro-rectors also visited the universities of Fribourg and Bern, in addition to the Federal Higher Technical School in Zurich. Over 50 books on the history of Belarus, in addition to reference books and various teaching aids in Belarusian, were donated to the Eastern Europe Library at the University of Bern.
