Abu Dhabi University & CCIRC unite to elevate research efforts

Abu Dhabi University (ADU) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Italy-Czech Republic Chamber of Commerce (CCIRC) in order to elevate research efforts in academia.

This partnership will enable joint research collaborations and grant applications with European universities, addressing global challenges, while emphasizing the exchange of academic and scientific materials with these universities.

The MoU intends to facilitate international exposure and new learning opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students. Further, it seeks to promote the exchange of faculty, researchers, and staff members between ADU and European universities to enhance knowledge sharing.

The MoU was signed by Dr. Hamad Odhabi, Vice Chancellor of Financial and Administration Affairs at ADU, and Antonio Rotondo, Chairman of CCIRC.

Dr. Odhabi commented that, “Through this partnership, we aim to create a dynamic environment for our students and faculty. At ADU, we work closely with our prestigious partners to introduce a new era of academic excellence, integrating the latest technologies and groundbreaking inventions into the educational sector in the UAE.”

For his part, Antonio stated that, “We are excited about this collaboration with Abu Dhabi University, which opens new avenues for educational and research exchanges between the UAE and Italy. This MoU lays the foundation for a strong and mutually beneficial partnership.”

ADU and CCIRC will work together to establish a research center for entrepreneurship studies and start-ups in both Italy and the UAE, boosting both countries’ efforts in the field. They will also develop a competence center for the agri-food supply chain to serve as a hub for services, information, and technical-scientific contributions.

According to the statement, ADU and CCIRC will organize joint international workshops, conferences, and seminars providing a platform to discuss the latest developments in research and innovation.
