Wallonia-Tunisia cooperation in the field of scientific research 08/09/2016

Wallonia-Tunisia cooperation in the field of scientific research and university exchange programmes has existed for several years. Recently, Tunisian universities (e.g. ESIERE) and research centres (e.g. Centre de Recherche et des Technologies des Eaux) took part in research projects with Walloon universities (e.g. UCL, Louvain-la-Neuve). These projects financed by Wallonie-Bruxelles-International have, in addition to scientific results, given rise to exchanges between teachers/researchers and students. Walloon universities are greatly involved in future research projects (Medjerda project between the UCL's Earth and Life Institute and the ESIERE in Mdjez el-Bab), the organisation and participation in scientific days organised in Tunisia, and the development of future exchange programmes for students and experts.
