Scientific Cooperation

The relations of scientific and technological cooperation are mostly based on direct contacts between researchers belonging to Universities and Departments of the two Countries. 
The bilateral Agreement on Scientific and Technological Cooperation was signed on 22nd October 2001 in Valletta. However it has not yet been ratified and therefore it is not in force. 

Every year, the Italian Cultural Institute organizes seminars in collaboration with the local University, with the intervention of Italian experts, on subjects like (to mention a few which have been dealt with in the past): environment and health, landscaping and planning, astro-physics, artificial intelligence, bio-technologies and transgenic food, urban recovery, employment and diffusion of the electric of the electric vehicle.                     

A particular case of cultural and scientific cooperation is represented by Italian Archeological Mission, which has been operating in Malta since 1963 with excavations and research in the Sanctuary of Astarte at Tas-Silg and in the Villa of San Pawl Milqi. The equipe that is currently operative is composed by researchers of three Italian Universities: the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, the Universita’ Cattolica of Milan and the Universita’ degli Studi of Lecce.  The activities of research and conservation are conducted thanks to funds granted by Italian Bodies: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education, University and Research and single Universities.
