The Rector of the UB, Dr Dídac Ramírez, has met today, Friday 31st May, within the Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education (AECHE), with the presidents of the Mauritanian University of Nouakchott, Sidi O. Mohamed Abdellahi, and the University of Aïoune, Mohamed Ould Amar, and with the Rector's Delegate of the Sciences, Technology and Medicine University of Nouakchott, El Ghadi Ould Ahmed, and the Vice-Rector of the Palestine Al-Quds University, Hanna Abdel Nour. Collaboration agreements have been signed with these four institutions.

The agreements signed among Mauritanian universities, the UB and Món-3 Foundation focus on higher education in human, social and experimental sciences; sustainable development research exchanges; knowledge transfer to those society sectors which need to improve life conditions, and the start up of development cooperation projects. The agreement with these institutions, which are the three Mauritanian public universities, continues the work that the UB has carried out together with Mauritanian university system for fifteen years, in fields such as postgraduate courses, joint research and the edition of publications. This collaboration, which has been funded by Barcelona City Council, has been mainly focused on agriculture and the guarantee of food sovereignty.

The agreement between the UB and Al Quds University will deal with these issues too, and particularly with the defence of human rights and peace promotion. In this sense, the work has given birth, for example, to a conference on water at Birzeit University and an exhibition on this issue which has travelled around several Palestine universities.

AECHE has among its objectives to foster neighbourhood relations between Arab and European regions, and to promote international peace and solidarity. Consequently, UB Solidarity has an important participation in the meeting. The conference is intended to mean an advance in civil societies and social development collaboration.
