Iran Science Day in Germany

Postponed until further notice!

Given the recent events in Iran, the "Iranian Science Day in Germany" is being postponed. In this context, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) refers to the Statement by the German Federal Foreign Office (AA) on the situation in Iran.

A new date for this event will be announced in due time.

The ministry expresses its regret for the short-term postponement of the event and kindly asks the involved parties for their understanding.

Nonetheless, science remains one of the bilateral cooperation areas with Iran that are considered appropriate and eligible for support. This remains unchanged.
