Among the areas of common interest, UM5 cites support for the establishment of training in dentistry, support for the training and promotion of Mauritanian teacher-researchers, encouragement for the mobility of teacher-researchers and students, the implementation of joint research projects, particularly in the field of water, renewable energies, the environment and sustainable development.

The Moroccan delegation was thus received by Mohamed Lemine Ould Aboye Ould Cheikh El Hadrami, Mauritanian Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, at the headquarters of his ministry.

On this occasion, the Mauritanian minister welcomed the commitment of the University Mohammed V-Rabat to develop cooperation with Mauritanian universities, said the same source.
