JewishPress.com — Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) President Hicham El Habti recently led a delegation of ten of the university’s Senior Managers and Researchers on a visit to BGU.

The visit follows an agreement signed between the two universities last October to collaborate on research after the Abraham Accords relaunched diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The delegation, greeted by university president Prof. Daniel Chamovitz, included high-level representatives of several research fields including cyber, medical services, agriculture, business, and economics.

The two universities will collaborate on several fields critical to human survival: food security, ecological restoration, smart agriculture in a changing climate, water, remote sensing, alternative energy, entrepreneurship, venture capital among others.

UM6P President El Habti said, “We are confident that our partnership with Ben-Gurion University, one of the leading research universities in Israel and a top university worldwide in the field of sustainability amongst many other fields, will contribute to our research priorities.”

He went on to say, “We have a joint vision to advance innovative research and technologies critical to the Earth’s future.”
