Morocco and Israel to bolster cooperation ties in scientific research, innovation
June 21, 2023
Ways of strengthening cooperation between Morocco and Israel in scientific research and innovation were at the center of talks held Tuesday in Rabat between Moroccan Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation, Abdellatif Miraoui and Israeli Minister of Innovation, Science and Technology, Ofir Akunis.
The two ministers also discussed partnerships between the two countries’ universities and research facilities through the exchange of university students & teachers and joint participation in scientific research projects of common interest.
Since the normalization of relations between Rabat & Tel Aviv under the U.S.-brokered Abraham Accords, visits and contacts between Moroccan and Israeli officials intensified, culminating with the signing of a series of cooperation accords in defense, cybersecurity, technology, scientific research, tourism, economy, culture, agriculture, water, industry, healthcare, and security.
