Brief Description: International Student Festival of HARKAT is the largest student event in Iran. The festival is organized by Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology of Iran and hosted by different universities since 2008. The thought was to gather students from different parts of the world in a combination of a festival and an exhibition. The festival aims at encouraging student projects and activities, fostering inspiration and being a starting point for international cooperation amongst students. The Festival is open for students from all over the world and is a meeting platform for young people with different scientific and cultural backgrounds. It is a place where young people get to know each other, establish new friendships and discuss various topics, from different points of view. Participants arrived at Tehran for pre-festival workshops and tours, and it
followed by visit to Kashan. This year the festival was hosted at historical
city of Isfahan, cultural capital of Iran.
Festival participants took part in different workshops, which highlighted collaboration and creativity. Several lectures and thematic meetings were arranged, where students of different universities of Iran presented their activities and projects. Through workshops, close communication and cooperation, interactive lectures and various open activities, students
gained new knowledge and exchanged ideas.
The 11th International Student Festival of Harkat, which is generally aimed at young students and scholars, had a different structure from previous periods. In addition to presenting the achievements of student activities around the world, this section includes courses, cultural programs, Iranian-Islamic history art, diverse visits and teamwork.
