ADVETI to take Arabic science content from DFF
Science and technology publications to encourage interest in innovation among ADVETI students
Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) has signed an agreement to provide Arabic content focused on science and technology to Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute (ADVETI).
Print and online content in Arabic will be supplied by DFF to ADVETI libraries and facilities, with the aim of promoting innovation and future knowledge.
An MoU was signed by His Excellency Abdullah bin Touq, Acting CEO of the Dubai Future Foundation, and Dr Abdulrahman Jassim Al Hammadi, Managing Director of ADVETI.
Under the agreement, DFF will create scientific content for ADVETI, including weekly e-publications on developing sectors, hosted on The Future Monitor online platform.
DFF will also supply the new Arabic language version of Popular Science magazine.
HE Abdullah bin Touq said: "Developing students' and academics' abilities to build the future through knowledge is the cornerstone of the emerging future industry. With that in mind, we have set out to strengthen cooperation with various entities across the UAE in an effort to spread knowledge and provide the youth with scientific insights on the latest technological developments. This, in turn, creates future leaders - ones that are capable of influencing the future."
"This MoU serves our pivotal role in executing the Dubai Future Agenda," HE bin Touq continued, "which calls for developing cooperation between organizations - public and private - to hone individual skillsets and promote innovation as a tool to create a better future for our society."
For his part, Dr Abdulrahman Al Hammadi stressed the importance of this MoU, which paves the way for the Institute to develop relationships with various entities across cultural, intellectual, and economic sectors. The agreement promotes innovation among students, creates a stimulating environment, and promotes their talents and expertise.
Al Hammadi added that the MoU encourages students to read weekly e-publications by The Future Monitor; it will also provide them with vast insights on innovation-related research, which helps develop their aptitude and capacities, empowering them to actively participate in future-building efforts.
DFF is tasked with distributing The Future Monitor's scientific content and material - along with Popular Science magazine - to over 11,000 ADVETI students and alumni, the MoU says, which will help students excel in their studies, improve their knowledge, and develop their capabilities in innovation and scientific research. ADVETI, meanwhile, will develop a framework to publish the e-content among students and staff according to schedule, using its E-Systems.
