Student exchange programs were said to be of particular interest. Ranjbar had already met IPA Group Leader Markus Cudazzo in 2016 at a powder paint seminar held at Tafresh University. In terms of their thematic focus, the research institutions have much in common. Prof. Ranjbar’s return visit could represent the first step towards a long-term collaboration.
