They will exchange expertise and research in the areas of business administration, computer science, information systems, and public policy, and also co-operate to organise joint conferences, seminars, and specialised workshops.
Al-Mohamed said the agreement would contribute to efforts to integrate the industrial and academic sectors, while promoting capacity building and skills development of GCC industry professionals.
“The Gulf Organisation for Industrial Consulting always seeks to exchange expertise with research and training institutions to advance its mission. We are always keen to undertake initiatives that reflect the depth of our commitment to social responsibility by investing in industrial, economic, academic, and environmental development. We hope that our joint efforts will have a positive impact in terms of supporting growth in GCC countries at all levels,” he explained.
Dr Trick said CMU-Q’s efforts are closely aligned with the GCC’s objectives and the Qatar National Vision 2030 to develop human potential across the region.
“We are pleased to work with the Goic to promote learning, knowledge and skill development in the Gulf region. An MoU is an opportunity for organisations to bring their areas of expertise together to promote a common vision. I look forward to working with the Goic to find new ways to share knowledge and to provide opportunities for young professionals in the Gulf.”
