As part of the Palestinian-Italian universities project “Enhancement of the Palestinian University System,” the regular meeting of the Coordinating Committee was held at the BZU Center for Continuing Education on 5 July 2012. The University of Pavia, Italy, presented the project to the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ General Directorate on Development and Cooperation. The meeting was coordinated by the Vice President of the University of Pavia and BZU Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Adnan Yahya. In attendance were coordinators and representatives of the Palestinian and Italian universities, as well as the Representative of the Italian Technical Cooperation in Palestine.



Dr. Yahya noted that the Project is an important opportunity for faculty development, since this cooperation allows BZU faculty members and students to engage in professional relationships with their counterparts. He added that this Project opens the possibility for knowledge sharing and networking, which could breed long-term relations between international universities and Palestinian academic institutions. In fact, seven Palestinian universities have been involved in the project: Bethlehem University, Al-Quds University, An-Najah University, Hebron University, Birzeit University, Arab American University of Jenin and the Palestine Polytechnic University of Hebron.

The time frame for this project is three years, starting January 2011 and concluding December 2013.
