Researchers’ Forum On UAE International Security, Internal Security, Disaster Management And Related Areas Khalifa University April 11, 2016
Emanuel Jech, CPP and Treasurer of the Abu Dhabi Chapter represented ASIS at the inaugural meeting of this new forum compromised of selected academic researchers and industry professionals.
The forum was convened with the vision of building the researcher network within this and related disciplines, to identify the scope and scale of securityrelated research in the UAE, and to explore potential collaboration opportunities between academia and the private sector.
A number of potential opportunities to collaborate were identified and that further meetings would be held to progress the ideas. An overview of ASIS and its mission was presented to the forum which dovetailed into a recommendation that a meeting in parallel with the Abu Dhabi Chapter would be in order to extend the reach of the forum and to solicit additional feedback from another diverse group of experts. This is scheduled for the September chapter meeting.
