April 16 Science Day : A permanent ressourcing

It is a ritual that we agree every year to commemorate this scientific event, a halt to knowledge which somewhere must allow us to keep awake our scientific patriotism in front of the world movement and, doing so, to fight against the defeat of thought.

This April 16, 2020 which, let us remember, symbolically commemorates BEN Badis’ fight for openness to universal knowledge without losing its cultural fundamentals for the good of this Algeria which is so dear to our hearts.

Higher education, through teachers and students, is called to fight against ignorance through serious, applied, and permanent work.

We need every day to invent a new way of going to the conquest of knowledge. We are confronted in this pandemic with an invisible enemy who prevents us from doing properly our studies and teachings.

Let’s find out the most elegant solutions to always advance in knowledge. This consistency should allow us to show even more imagination and resilience in an increasingly uncertain world.

Who would have said that the traditional university, “Dad” University, opens up to modernity, e-learning, platforms, Moodle, Zoom …, online courses ? Even UFC has to molt to take charge of the virtual university, the second chance university. All knowledge should be available. What matters is how to get them “accepted” by the students, using intelligence.

New challenges await us. All together, let’s show that we can take up the challenge.

خُـذْ لِلحَـيـاةِ سِلاَحَـهـا وَخُـضِ الخْـطُـوبَ وَلاَ تَهبْ   said  Ben Badis


WHIRSHAFFENDAS : said Mse  MERKEL (Yes. We’ll be able to). I wish a lot of success for our elite, as long as they understand the New Algeria is counting on them.

Minister Chitour acknowledges the intense efforts provided to overcome the covid-19 pandemic

The outbreak of the global pandemic Corona (covid-19) is affecting, among other nations, our
country. This silently devastating virus has generated a certain shortage in consumer products,
notably those related to protective and preventive measures.
Nonetheless, the Algerian academic community and our fellow researchers, along with our
brave students, in the universities of: Batna, Tizi Ouzou, Blida, Boumerdes, Algiers, Setif, Constantine,
Oran, as well as the CDTA and “Pasteur” institute of Constantine, successfully manufactured
paramedical products, disinfectant gels, protective masks, PCR’s, artificial respiration prototypes,
and many other products.
For this, I wish to reiterate my thanks and also express how much we are indebted to our
academic community, and research teams who alway stood and proven their genuine and true sense
of responsibility in hard times.
Once again, I would like to share with them my pride, and utmost recognition for their involvement
and the longstanding commitment they have demonstrated in serving our country, particularly in the
current health and economic circumstances.
May Allah reward them and help us all eradicate this deadly pandemic, and protect our people who, with no doubt, will emerge from this terrible ordeal.
Professor Chems Eddine Chitour

Tribute to the Algerian Medics and Paramedics

In this particular situation in which our nation is going through, characterized by the
emergence of a common and global enemy. On behalf of the Ministry of Higher Education, and on
my name, I witness my sincere and authentic tribute to our fellow compatriots in the health sector
namely teachers, university hospital researchers, public and private health practitioners, who are
battling on the ground, and ensuring the the necessary conditions to fight against this world scourge,
and who are still risking their lives.
I express my total gratitude and my unwavering support.
May the Almighty Allah reward them and help us all, and strengthen our solidarity to defeat
this enemy and protect our people, who always and undoubtedly emerge from this terrible ordeal
