KUWAIT, March 3 (KUNA) — Kuwait University (KU) and The Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) signed on Thursday a partnership agreement on furthering scientific research and giving support to scholars with competent track records.
KU President Dr. Hussein Al-Ansari noted in a press statement after the signing ceremony that time was ripe that two of the largest educational institutions in the country should pool their resources, both human and otherwise, into joint activities that allow teaching staff in KU and PAAET to use their talents and expertise in organizing research forums and scientific symposiums and publishing research papers, among other activities.
He said he was heartened by the agreement “which will allow both institutions to work as a single unit in a partnership to enhance higher education in Kuwait.” This agreement was long overdue since cooperation between the two institutions had been ongoing on myriads of levels particularly in exchanging teaching staff and using each other’s lab facilities; the agreement today simply caps this cooperation, said PAAET Director-General Dr. Ahmad Al-Athari, in a similar press statement.
He emphasized that both institutions would be working closely and jointly on vital government growth and development projects as prescribed by the clauses of the signed agreement.
The two institutions will share the publishing of research papers and the training of researchers and technicians and lecturers, among other things. (end) asa.ajs
