The High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, visits the UEMF


High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and Vice- President of the European Commission, Josep Borrell, visits UEMF for his second visit to the eco-campus.

Welcomed by the President of the University, Pr. Mostapha Bousmina, and by the students of the UEMF, Mr. Josep Borrell was accompanied by an EU delegation and by Mrs.

Patricia Llombart Cussac, EU Ambassador in Morocco. This second visit of Mr. Borrell to the UEMF testifies to his desire to maintain the UEMF-EU partnership but also to meet young people and exchange with them in person.

He led a conference on the Strategic Responsibility of Europe, particularly in the current geopolitical context. Students from all disciplines and particularly those from the Euromed Institute of Legal and Political Sciences, were more interested in the subject of this conference.

The exchange focused on Morocco-EU cooperation but also on current international issues such as the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and the challenges of the Euro- Mediterranean region.

This meeting ended with a visit to the "Research-Innovation" platform and incubator of the University.

Mr. Borrell indeed expressed his admiration and his encouragement with regard to the efforts made to provide students/researchers with high-tech equipment allowing them to participate in the revitalization of the region and to set up innovative projects.

As a reminder, Mr. Josep Borrel went to the UEMF in June 2019, during the graduation ceremony, as guest of honor.
