Dubai Operator Partners with University on Education, Research
Monday, February 04, 2019 | Comments

Nedaa, the Dubai government secure networks provider, and University of Dubai (UD), an initiative of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, joined forces to be actively involved in the human capacity development and lifelong education of locals.

Nedaa is a TETRA operator moving toward complementing its existing TETRA service with a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network to boost communications among public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) agencies, as well as help accelerate Dubai’s transition to a smart city.

Top executives of the two organizations signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to push forward the goals of the national strategy for innovation launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.

“There is the need for the academia and the entities from both the government and private sectors to become allies to make the UAE one of the best countries worldwide,” said H.E. Mansoor Bu Osaiba, CEO, Nedaa. “Nedaa and UD are doing exactly that. Through our creative partnership, we will help foster knowledge exchange and innovation in the country, with a special focus on skill and competency enhancement of our nationals by engaging them in continuous training and education. Human capacity development and education are going to be the central themes of our strategic cooperation.”

The five main areas of collaboration are education, student internship and placement, recruitment, research and innovation, and joint seminars and conferences. The two sides are looking at developing communications technologies and related technological scopes to achieve the commitment within the bounds of the agreement.

Both parties also agreed to embark on relevant research and studies, working mutually to use their shared and available resources. The institutions also consented to the joint provision of tools and systems to help facilitate local government services.
