Oman’s Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn), represented by Al Buraimi Industrial City, has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the University of Buraimi, aligning with their efforts to enhance mutual cooperation and exchange expertise.
Furthermore, it intends to strengthen public-private partnerships, promote sustainable knowledge and innovation initiatives, support research and development, and work towards realizing Oman Vision 2040.
The MoC was signed by Mr. Said bin Abdullah Al Balushi, Director General of Al Buraimi Industrial City, and Dr. Saeed Eid Younes, President of the University of Buraimi.
The agreement is designed to streamline the land allocation process for entrepreneurs holding the ‘Riyada’ card and student innovators. Further, this partnership will enable several benefits, including facilitating procedures of tuition fees for Madayn employees and investors, exchanging short training programs, granting access to the university’s state-of-the-art IT facilities, and creating training opportunities for students within companies located in Al Buraimi Industrial City.
Earlier this year, Madayn introduced an online training platform ‘Durbah’ in order to boost employee development and organizational performance. The new platform intends to enhance the practical and scientific skills of employees in industrial cities and foster organizational performance by facilitating knowledge transfer and promoting continuous learning.
