UAE varsity is region's major 'research engine'
AL AIN — The UAE University (UAEU), with its emphasis on high-calibre research and development projects, has emerged as a major "research engine" of the region.
This was stated by the UAEU Provost, Dr Abdullah Al-Khanbashi, on Saturday while delivering the opening address at the university's 7th Annual Research Conference in Al Ain.
He also said, "The UAEU has been trying to meet the R&D needs of the country and we have come a long way in this context. We are now a major research engine of the region and fully connected with the global network of innovative work."
Scientists from the UAEU and their counterparts from the GCC, besides the UK, Australia, Japan, Sweden and Egypt, are attending the conference. They discussed the latest scientific developments and the results of new studies conducted in different disciplines in the UAE..
As many as 110 research papers were presented from different disciplines such as Medicine, Science, Agriculture and Food System, Shariah and Law, and Library Science on the second day of the conference.
A special two-hour session discussed road traffic safety issues.
The session, attended by some of the leading international experts on road accidents, was chaired by Dr Yasser Hawas, Director of Roadway Transport and Traffic Safety Research Center (RTTSRC).
The UAE University established RTTSRC two years ago in Al Ain, in collaboration with the Australia's Monash University Accident Research Center and Holden GM, the Australian subsidiary of leading American automobile manufacturer General Motors.
The interior and the health ministries of the UAE and the Al Ain Municipality also support the Center.
