The two sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to conduct joint research projects, exchange personnel, and implement small-scale ventures. DP World Limassol has also pledged to continue to make internships available to TEPAK students and support their research projects.
The MoU was signed by DP World Limassol CEO Nawaf Abdulla, and TEPAK rector, Panayiotis Zaphiris.
Abdulla underlined that the MoU is in line with the DP World’s commitment to have a positive impact on the community, and said, “We are very excited to further strengthen our cooperation with TEPAK students and scientists. Over the past few years, we provided internships to students pursuing a degree in shipping or related fields with excellent results, with a number of them being offered permanent positions. It truly is an honour to be cooperating with such a reputable organisation, and we believe that we can both learn from one another. Furthermore, DP World’s sustainability strategy will continue to build on our success of providing opportunities for students through our industry, whilst expanding our focus areas to include three additional themes – access to education, skills for the future and industry exposure.”
