Joint projects have been outlined by specialists from the Belarusian State Technological University and Al-Baas University, of the Syrian Arab Republic. Relations are being developed in line with a memorandum of co-operation, signed in December 2010. The Belarusian National Technical University and the affiliated Polytechnik Technopark are to continue liaising with Syrian scientific centres. This year, Al-Baas University is expected to open a department of the Belarusian-Syrian Centre for Sci-Tech Co-operation.
Scientists from our two countries are to discuss the results of their joint research and new projects at the first Belarus-Syria Sci-Tech Seminar, to be held in Minsk this May. They will explore the latest trends in advanced construction materials, prospects for laser technologies in medicine and engineering, and possibilities for partnership in bio-technologies.
