As a result of the operation of exchange and cooperation projects for national and international students, teachers, scientists and authorities, it was deemed necessary to create a specific accommodation. The Institute’s leadership therefore commissioned the Patronage for Works and Facilities (POI)to build a place which was finished in January 2007 to host the visiting researchers. The RIV was inaugurated on 8th February 2007at a protocol ceremony with the assistance of authorities from both the Ministry of Education and the IPN.
