Atkins renews Dubai British University partnership

Atkins is celebrating a decade of partnering with the British University in Dubai (BUiD) after renewing its agreement to sponsor the Chair for Sustainable Design of the Built Environment.

 The two organisations have agreed a three-year contract extension which will see them sharing knowledge and technical expertise in order to deliver evidence-based research.

 Simon Moon, Middle East CEO for Atkins, said: “Our relationship with the British University in Dubai is very special to us, and it serves two very important purposes. On the one hand, it is part of our commitment to investing in the next generation of talent in our sector, while on the other it is about enabling research into innovative sustainable solutions for our future urban environments.

 “This combined proposition is an extremely powerful one for Atkins, and we’re looking forward to building an even closer mutually beneficial relationship with BUiD over the next three years.”
