Visit of the Swedish Ambassador HE Jörgen Karlsson to the Euromed University of Fez


Euromed University of Fez had the honor today of welcoming HE Jörgen Karlsson, Ambassador of Sweden to Morocco. During this visit, Ambassador Karlsson met with the President of the University, Prof. Mostapha Bousmina to discuss potential future collaborations. This meeting was marked by fruitful exchanges on themes of common interest.

Sweden, known for its strong diplomatic relations with almost all countries in the world, particularly the MENA region, seeks through this meeting to expand opportunities for collaboration with Morocco. Having launched a study in 1997 on the creation of a platform for dialogue with the MENA region, the Swedish government aimed to further strengthen contacts and cooperation with countries in the Middle East and North Africa, to facilitate dialogues on issues of common interest and to contribute to the Euro-Mediterranean partnership.

Indeed, the Euromed University of Fez welcomes this opportunity for cooperation, particularly in the areas of research on global issues such as climate change, immigration, intergenerational dialogue as well as innovation and entrepreneurship. . Placing at the heart of our strategy a foundation based on seven pillars, including dialogue and multiculturalism, these values ​​are also shared by the Swedish Dialogue Institute for the Middle East and North Africa. In 2023, the Institute led a participatory process aimed at exploring and co-creating knowledge on intergenerational dialogue, demonstrating its potential to foster mutual understanding and cooperation across generations. This initiative particularly resonates with our commitment at Euromed University of Fez to strengthen exchanges and promote intercultural dialogue in all of our research and development projects.
