On Wednesday January 27th, the URV was visited by a delegation from the Université Mohamed Premier in Oujda, Morocco. The delegation was led by the head of the Department of Geology and two fellow researchers and took part in intensive working meetings with the IPHES (Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution)
This fruitful relationship between the IPHES and the Université Mohamed Premier will be 10 years old this spring and to celebrate this occasion a seminar will be held at the Moroccan institution. This research collaboration has already led to remarkable finds at the site that the two institutions are excavating together in Oujda.
The Moroccan delegation was received by the Vice-Rector for Internationalisation, Dr Mar Gutiérrez-Colón, and the Vice-Rector for Scientific Policy and Research, Dr Josep Manel Ricart, both of whom acknowledged the importance of these close collaborations and were invited to the celebratory seminar this coming spring.
