(ANSA) - TRIESTE, MAY 13 - Building a bridge between the European city of science in 2020, Trieste, and the capital of culture, Rijeka (Croatia) is one of the objectives of the ESOF 2020 organizers and the University of Rijeka. The two sides met today in Trieste, before the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, tomorrow in Croatia.

Among the initiatives included in the MoU, an ESOF 2020 trip to Rijeka in March, in order to present the event. In July, when Trieste will host the scientific conference, the University of Rijeka will attend the event to showcase its proposals.

According to the president of the Trieste International Foundation and Champion ESOF 2020, Stefano Fantoni, the concurrence of the two European events ''strengthens the collaboration that has been developed for many years between the two realities even in terms of scientific research''. And this collaboration is in line, he added, with a ''European strategy that strengthens the Balkan component of Central Eastern Europe'', with regard to access to research funding mechanisms.

''This connection is important to us for many reasons - added the vice-rector of the University of Rijeka, Alen Ruzic -, and among these reasons is the exchange of cultural and scientific programs with the aim of enhancing collaboration even after 2020''. (ANSA).
