    - ROME - The partnership between the Italian academic world and the Moroccan one has been strengthened with an agreement between two major universities. The accord between the Università Telematica Internazionale Uninettuno and the Al Akhawayn University - on the wishes of the rectors Maria Amata Garito and Driss Ouaouicha - was signed in the presence of Italian education minister Stefania Giannini and her Moroccan counterpart Lahcen Daoudi.

    The main points of the agreement call for collaboration on research programs, professor exchanges, the creation of joint education and the beginning of joint professional courses. The work will be conducted through mixed commissions to create joint curricula and issue educational degrees that will be recognized in Morocco, Italy and the rest of Europe. The agreement will also enable Uninettuno and Al Akhawayn to work together to develop e-learning programs from the Euro-Mediterranean University of Fez, with the aim of offering education for all students from the Mediterranean, Africa and Europe that would not otherwise be able to frequent degree courses that require a physical presence. ''Our two universities,'' Rector Garito said, '' base their didactic activities on the principle of democratic access to knowledge and knowledge sharing, so that everyone is recognized as having the right to education and training, regardless of gender, religion, language, or economic and social conditions.'' Both of the universities are firmly committed to the development of modern academic programs and the use of new technologies to better respond to labor market needs. (ANSAmed).
