MAYA_Agricultural and hydrological Approaches to a better and sustainable development conference on April 12th, 2021

On April 12th will be held the final conference of the Erasmus + Capacity building project MAYA: Master in Agricultural and hYdrological Approaches to a better and sustainable development aimed at analysing Scientific cooperation in the Mediterranean region.

The conference concludes the three and half MAYA project cofounded by the European Project that realised a new inter-university postgraduate Master on integrated water and agriculture management involving the three Tunisian universities: the University of Carthage, the University of Tunis El Manar, and the University of Sfax, attended by around 30 students. A Virtual Reality (VR) educational game was co-designed, realized and distributed to the Tunisians HEI’s for supporting the educational process of the Master.

Students and teachers of the Masters realized several field visits in Tunisia, exploring the different climatic zone of the country and testing several approaches to deal with water scarcity in agriculture.

The meeting will be held on-line on April 12th 2021, from 8:30 CET Time zone at the following link: https://zoom.us/j/94447805585

The conference will be not only an opportunity to spread the project results but also a significant occasion to discuss about the future project prospects emerging from MAYA collaboration and the South-North and South-South Perspective of Higher Education in North Africa.

The conference will be attended not only by the partners of the project but also by representatives of important organisations such as FAO, the Bureau of Water Planning and Hydraulic Equilibriums (BPEH) in Tunisia, the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies CIHEAM Iamb-Bari and by the coordinator of the National Erasmus+ Office in Tunisia. It consists of slide show presentation, speech and open discussion. Scientists, teachers, students will debate on the Scientific cooperation in the Mediterranean area.
