Seferyan visited the Yerevan Physics Institute (YerPhI) to discuss the possibilities of scientific collaboration between YerPhI and Brazilian universities. Brazil is a developing country with fast growing economy and is highly interested in establishing scientific relations with Armenia – a country with rich scientific heritage, still retaining high level of research in physics.
