Abu Dhabi, August 24, 2011
Abu Dhabi University (ADU) said it has signed a four-year agreement with Envirozone Middle East to set up an analytical laboratory for analyzing samples of water, soil and air.
The MoU is aimed at providing scientific research, training and professional consultation on environmental safety, said Majid Bizzari, managing director of Envirozone Middle East and Dr Terry Motiuk, ADU vice chancellor after signing the pact.
The MoU will focus on advanced technological development; improved working environments for professionals; improved expertise of university researchers and the development of scientific skills.
The key objectives include the exchange of knowledge in the form of visiting of scientific experts from either party; education and training programs for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as organization of scientific conferences, workshops and specialized seminars on the latest scientific developments related to environmental safety.
Bizzari said this co-operation with ADU represents a milestone for scientific communication and exchange of scientific and research expertise between the two organizations.
According to him, the establishment of strategic co-operative relations will provide professors and students direct access and resources available at Envirozone.
Dr Motiuk said the partnership will strengthen both organizations’ contribution towards creating generations of graduates and postgraduates with the requisite skills to effectively create sustainable environment for the UAE.
According to Dr Mackin, the agreement focuses not only on improving the university’s scientific research but also on achieving societal benefits to the community.
Dr Abdel-Mohsen said the university was no longer limited to satisfying just the academic needs of the UAE but also wanted to open up to industrial enterprises and services such as Envirozone.-TradeArabia News Service
