Political approach

From the very beginning the project had a strong political impact and rates high among authorities in UAE and Germany. Such cooperation can help not only to produce skilled professionals for the UAE economy, but also to secure jobs both in Germany and UAE.

The Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony between the representative of the Consortium of German Universities of Applied Sciences and UAE Minister of Higher Education and Research, and Chancellor of Higher Colleges of Technology, H.E. Sheikh Nayahan Mabarak Al Nahayan, was accomplished in the presence of the Federal Chancellor of Germany, Dr Angela Merkel, and the Crown Prince of the United Arab Emirates, H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The Cooperation Agreement signing ceremony was accomplished in the presence of the UAE Minister of Higher Education and Research (the Chancellor of Higher Colleges of Technology), Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan and the Prime-Minister of Saxony Stanislaw Tillich.

The ceremony of validation of the Cooperation Agreement took place in Potsdam, Germany at the Ministry of Science, Research and Culture of Brandenburg in the presence of the Minister, Prof. Dr. Sabine Kunst.
