The conference entitled “Scientific cooperation in the Mediterranean: capacity building, multidisciplinary approach and multi-agency partnership” will be held next December 7th, at the University of Tunis El Manar to present a new Master course on Integrated Water Management and Sustainable Agriculture.
The Master was developed in the framework of the MAYA project – Master in Agricultural and Hydrological approaches to a better sustainable development implemented by the University of Sassari (Italy) as coordinator, the University of Sfax, the University of Tunis El Manar, the University of Carthage, the University of Girona (Spain), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) and UNIMED.
The Master course is oriented towards the professions of research in Life Sciences and Geography. The essential objective is to implement the knowledge and skills acquired by students during their training in Basic Licenses in Geography, Life Sciences and Earth Sciences, Life Sciences and the Environment, and this is to motivate them for research activities. The program of the proposed teaching units was chosen taking into account the rapid evolution in the fields of geography, environment, plant and microbial biotechnology and ensuring both a wide coverage of the different basic disciplines and the access to specialized courses of current interest. The teaching of fundamental concepts is combined with the learning of methodological tools and the presentation of the current issues of research and its applications in the chosen disciplines.
The conference will be attended by the teachers involved in the project and in the master’s, the students as well as the stakeholders interested in this field. Here a draft of the Conference programme.
