UAE University (UAEU) had recently organised a three-day global QS WorldClass 2018 seminar themed “Changes in University/Industry Interaction” in partnership with QS Asia, which successfully concluded on 18 April 2018.
The seminar was inaugurated by Dr Mohammed Al Mualla, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Higher Education for Academic Affairs, in the presence of Dr Mohammed Al Biali, Director of UAEU, and many other international scholars and academics present at the event.
The main objective of the event was to foster dialogue between universities and industry partners – discussing on the development in the global economy and how the education landscape can address these transformations in order to establish a future strategic vision through enhanced university-industry partnerships.
At the end of the seminar discussions, both parties settled on the advancement of a platform for international organisations where the relations between universities and industry partners can be reviewed and analysed. In addition, the platform can allow for the organisation of global dialogue sessions for the exchange of best practices, achievements and experiences in interactive settings which will involve international participants as well.
