Iranian academics to visit Switzerland
Switzerland will be hosting a group of Iranian university rectors this week.
The academics will visit Geneva, Lausanne, Basel and Zurich universities as well as holding talks with federal education government officials.
The Iranians will be looking to see the potential of working with Swiss researchers – especially in the medical and environmental fields.
Switzerland has had educational links with Iran since 1961 and hundreds of Iranians are studying at Swiss universities.
