IRAN LOOKS TO CENTRE
Hedayatzadeh Rozavi, Iran's Ambassador to Italy, visited the ICTP late last month to discuss the possibility of wider cooperation between the Centre and the government of Tehran. Specifically, the Ambassador told ICTP Director, Miguel Virasoro, that Tehran would like to increase the number of young researchers coming to study in Trieste through additional fellowships sponsored by the Iranian government. The arrangement would be similar to those the Centre currently enjoys with several other countries, including Argentina, China and India. About 50 Iranian scientists presently come each year to study at the ICTP.
