The National portfolio of Science (MINCYT) initialed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Science and Technology, Professional and Technical Superior Education of Mozambique. The parties agreed to commit themselves to foster scientific and technological cooperation in connection with renewable energy, health-related sciences, marine sciences, environment, use and sustainability of water, among other areas of general interest.

The ceremony was carried out in Maputo, attended by Ministry Lino Barañao and its counterpart in Mozambique, Jorge Olivio Penicela Nhambiu; the director for Cooperation and Institutional Integration, Mariano Jordan; and local officers.

In this context, Barañao expressed that: “In a world which is closed by frontiers, we aim at showing that by executing this agreement, the cooperation, coexistence with diversity and values and also the potentials of each State may lead to a higher improvement at the national level, and offer citizens a better quality of life ".

The initiative covers from experts’, researchers’ and scientists’ interchange to the flow of documentation and projects. Additionally, institutions involved will have resources for the organization and conduction of seminars, symposiums, conferences, and related events. The text also provides for the granting of scholarships, as well as for the training and formation of human resources in strategic fields at both countries.

Bonds among both portfolios are connected back with the Cooperation Agreement, signed by the then Argentinian Secretary of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Science of Mozambique in 2006. In this way, this allowed for the execution of the FO.AR, a South-South Cooperation Project, by means of which technical assistance was provided to create mechanisms of articulation among the scientific institutions of the African country.

On the basis of that experience, which included the funding for researchers’ mobility purposes and other joint actions, the present memorandum entails a new stage within a cooperation and interchange process which has been strengthened with time.
