The University of Padua is the second oldest university in Italy, founded in 1222, and is where many great scientists such as Galileo Galilei and Nicolaus Copernicus taught or studied.

This collaborative research proposal had been discussed since the two met at an international meeting (IBMM 2008) in Germany last September. The institutions will start to exchange researchers and information to promote their research.
