Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 05 July 2022:  Building on its successful collaborations with leading international academic institutions, Abu Dhabi University (ADU) announced a new partnership with the University of Reading (UoR), one of the UK’s top 30 universities and a world leader in research and teaching in agriculture, food science and climate change. The University of Reading's work on climate change has been recently honored with a Queen's Anniversary Prize, the highest national honor for a UK institution in higher and further education. 


The agreement is in line with ADU’s ongoing efforts to deliver an outstanding range of international programs along with research and knowledge exchange that supports national and regional prosperity.


The collaboration was announced through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed by Professor Waqar Ahmad, Chancellor of ADU, and Professor Paul Inman, Pro-Vice Chancellor (International), University of Reading, during Professor Ahmad’s visit to the University of Reading. 
The two institutions will explore the provision of teaching, research and consultancy in areas of critical importance to the UAE and the region, including agricultural business, food security and agricultural technology. A delegation from the University of Reading is expected to visit Abu Dhabi University later this year for further discussions on taking this partnership forward. 


Professor Waqar Ahmad, Chancellor of Abu Dhabi University (ADU), said: “The University of Reading (UoR) has an international reputation in teaching, research and engagement. It is a world leader in many subjects, including agriculture and food security, areas of great strategic importance to the UAE. I was delighted to visit the University and was immensely impressed, not only by their outstanding teaching, research and facilities but also their commitment to collaborate with ambitious institutions. This partnership focuses on giving access to world class teaching and research in areas of critical strategic importance, not only to the UAE but also the region.”
