UNESCO Chair in interdisciplinary Biotechnology

The UNESCO Chair in Interdisciplinary Biotechnology is part of the UNITWIN/Chairs UNESCO program that was launched in 1991.

The member States chose to set up an effective tool aimed to stimulate the transfer and exchange of experience and reinforce the connection between higher education institutions for the advancement of knowledge and the application of this knowledge in developmental problems.

A further aim was to promote equal sharing of knowledge and skills and to represent a promise for sustainable human development and a pace forward to advanced consciousness and understanding of culture.

The establishment of the UNESCO Chair in Interdisciplinary Biotechnology is the new initiative of UNESCO in agreement with the University of Rome "Tor Vergata".
