A Lecturer from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Kufa contributes to the Review of a Research project for the Swiss National Science Institute

The Swiss National Science Institute has selected Assistant Professor Dr. Ali Naji Attia, a lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering, to contribute to the evaluation of the research project submitted to it by the Swiss University of Zurich in partnership with the Vietnam National Institute for Culture and Literature to study the nature of the relationship between heritage and development plans in Vietnam.
Dr. Attia indicates that the research project is financed by the aforementioned Swiss institute at an amount of 249,700 Swiss francs, equivalent to approximately $ 271,000, and will continue to work for three years. He pointed out that the project aims to study the contradictory relationship between enhancing respect for heritage and development plans in different fields from the point of view of different dimensions, as Vietnam will be taken as a case study. He explained that the study will be conducted in the provinces of Quang Binh Win Bai, which are rich with important heritage monuments with many elements of intangible cultural heritage that are cherished by the local people. The study is expected to conclude the possibility that governmental and non-governmental policies contribute to preserving the heritage and developing the lives of local people through sustainable development projects.
It is noteworthy that Dr. Attia was hired as one of those who contributed to the two-river network project implemented by University College London in Britain to support Iraqi heritage for several years, as he was a visiting professor at the aforementioned college last year and received a financial grant of 30,000 pounds to study and document heritage buildings in Kufa.
