On the one part, Daniele Di Giovanni, President, on behalf of the HESAR association, and Dr. Pasqualino Gaudio, "International Master Courses in Protection against CBRNe Events" coordinator at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, on behalf of this institution, in recognition of their shared interest in establishing and developing a cooperative relationship between the university and the association, and within their respective powers, have agreed to enter into cooperation agreement on the 16th December 2016.
The aim of this agreement is to develop joint programmes of study, exchange and cooperation in the areas of teaching, research and student training. The agreement will be developed within the framework of cultural and scientific cooperation established between the two entities and both parties undertake to promote the possibility of extending this agreement to other institutions.
Cooperation may include the exchange of information and publications, the exchange of staff to complement the activities offered by each entity, seminars, colloquia and symposia, joint research projects, joint courses, access to specific equipment and materials, and short stay visits.
One of our future joint activities deserves a special mention in this context. HESAR is collaborating with the “Master Courses in Protection against CBRNe Events” to organize the 1st scientific international conference on CBRNe, SICC 2017. The Master’s Directive Board and Scientific Committee promoted the initiative of SICC 2017 conference and assigned its organizational management to the HESAR association. Also, thanks to the cooperation agreement between the Master and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, on the 23rd of May SICC 2017 will host the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
