Beirut Arab University (BAU), represented by its president Prof. Amr Galal El-Adawi, signed a collaboration agreement with the National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) represented by the Council’s Secretary General, Dr. Moeen Hamza in BAU’s Beirut campus in the presence of the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research, Prof. Hania Nakkash.

The collaboration aims at providing funding opportunities for BAU researchers where the University will provide financial support to the research projects equivalent to the amount provided by the Council, thus doubling the total amount of financial assistance allocated to accepted research projects. This agreement is in the context of BAU’s effort to endorse research activity by allowing more funding options for BAU researchers and also allowing for the alignment of the CNRS research priorities with BAU research themes.
