Abu Dhabi Ports, the master developer, operator and manager of ports and Khalifa Industrial Zone in the Emirate, and Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will pave the way for knowledge sharing, joint research projects, and job opportunities for students.
Abdullah Humaid Al Hameli, Acting Executive Vice President – Corporate Services, at Abu Dhabi Ports, and Dr Arif Sultan Al Hammadi, Executive Vice President of Khalifa University, signed the MoU at Abu Dhabi Ports’ headquarters. The signing was witnessed by Dr Tod Laursen, Khalifa University’s President and Dr Mohammed Al Mualla, the University’s Senior Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies.
Aiming to collaborate in areas of mutual interest, the MoU will provide a framework for both parties to exchange knowledge and expertise in order to achieve common goals. One such goal is to exchange innovative research findings– especially in the field of engineering, which can then be reviewed by Abu Dhabi Ports and possibly implemented to improve the quality of its services.
Commenting on the MoU signing, Al Hameli said, “This significant partnership with one of the Emirates’ leading universities supports two of Abu Dhabi Ports’ strategic objectives of innovation and Emiratisation. Our efforts to build a national cadre of trained Emirati talents that will further develop our operational framework to implement innovative solutions, stems from our wise leadership’s vision to have the UAE reach the top global benchmarks of innovation and business practices.”
