CASIS meetings

After the funding announcement, UNIPI has started the activities planned within CASIS with the organization of preliminary meetings between the Italian and Yemeni research centres.
The scientific coordinator, Alessandra Avanzini, has taken a more close contact with the Yemeni partners during a meeting in Aden, at the end of March.
The interlocutors from the Yemeni side were professor Yusuf Abdullah al-Shaibani and Amida Sholan, for the Ministry for Higher Education and Research, and doctor Abdallah Bawazir, for the General Organization of Antiquities and Museums (GOAM).
In June 2007, these same scholars participated to a meeting in Pisa, together with the Yemeni minister for Higher Education and Research, Saleh Ali Bassurah.
During the meeting, the main activities of the year were planned, and a convention of cooperation between the University of Pisa, the Yemeni Ministry for Higher Education and Research and GOAM was signed.
