The University of Brescia signs an agreement for scientific collaboration with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of the Government of Pakistan.

The document signed by the Rector, prof. Maurizio Tira, with the Higher Education Commission of the Government of Pakistan, is an important convention related to the PhD Research Courses of the University of Brescia, with the aim to promote the admission of Pakistani students to the academic courses at the University. The Government of Pakistan undertakes to finance for the next 5 years up to 6 scholarships per year in favor of its citizens giving them the possibility to carry on their PhD Research studies at the University of Brescia, where nowadays there are 9 PhD students of Pakistani nationality.
