University of Mazandaran and ICRANET (International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics Network) of Italy have signed a memorandum of understanding.
ICRANET is the most prominent and authoritative research center in relativistic astrophysics in the world. One of the chief responsibilities of ICRANET is to help the growth and development of international activities in the field of relativistic astrophysics and other fields related to physics in different countries.
ICRANET was founded in 1985 by renowned Italian physicist Remo Ruffini, Professor Riccardo Giacconi (winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2002), Professor Abdul Salam (winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1979), Professor Paul Boynton (professor at George Washington University), and several other leading physicists. Professor Remo Ruffini has been the director of this research institute since 2005.
Dr. Nozari, President of University of Mazandaran and a Professor of Physics, in his speech after signing the Memorandum of Understanding, expressed hope that the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding could create suitable grounds for holding conferences, joint scientific schools, joint international scientific projects, publication of joint articles, and professors as well as researchers’ visits and holding joint doctoral programs.
It is worth mentioning that University of Mazandaran is the second Iranian university, after Isfahan University of Technology, to sign a memorandum of understanding with this renowned international institute.
