AMRC Announces Strategic Academic Partnerships


Our Advanced Materials Research Center (AMRC) has established multiple partnerships and programs with leading academic institutions across the globe to work together on research projects that benefit the industry, economy, and society.

The first of AMRC's programs, Visiting Scholars, offer fellowships to scholars on a short term or long term, to carry out research on specialized topics of interest. Based on the duration of their study programs, they can also collaborate with AMRC's experts and present talks, conduct workshops and share observations in their areas of expertise and research.

The second, AMRC's Graduate Program, offers post-graduate students the chance to work with leading investigators for up to three years. In addition, to working with local and international academic institutions, the program extends several internships for graduate and undergraduate students. Other opportunities include dual-degree programs that are offered in cooperation with universities in the UAE and academic institutions in Europe.

The partnerships include the University of Sheffield, Universidade de Sao Paolo, Xi'an Jiaotong University, University of Nottingham, University of Manchester, Khalifa University, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC), Human Inspired Technology Research Centre (HIT), Innovation and Research, McGill University, Tecnico Lisboa and the University of Warwick.

Dr. Mohamed Al Teneiji, Chief Researcher at AMRC, said: "I believe such collaborations help push the boundaries of research even further. These strategic relationships are crucial to enable our students and graduates to enhance their insights and make headway in specific research streams. They receive the necessary financial and mentorship support to fuel their study and are able to access cutting-edge technologies and scholarships from some of the world's leading universities.

“These opportunities open up a world of possibilities for them and allow academia to work with some of the UAE's brightest minds. Most importantly, I am confident that these partnerships and programs will contribute to Abu Dhabi’s innovation ecosystem and R&D sectors as learnings are shared with the wider community."
