The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (Enec) said it has signed a MoU with Ajou University, a leading research institution based in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.

The deal is aimed at providing a framework for collaboration for research and development (R&D) and innovation in the energy fields, said the statement from Enec.

It is responsible for developing the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program and its flagship Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, one of the largest nuclear plants globally.

Established in 2009, Enec is delivering safe, clean, efficient and reliable electricity through nuclear energy to support the UAE’s sustainable social and economic growth.

Ajou University is one of the leading research universities in engineering, energy, and information technology. It was established in 1973 and was the first higher education center in South Korea to open a dedicated center to energy.

The MoU reinforces the continuous collaboration between the UAE and Korea in the R&D fields, building on the strong relationship between the two nations and opening the door for new opportunities across various sectors in the energy industry for both countries, stated its CEO Mohamed Ibrahim Al Hammadi after signing the deal with Ajou University President Park Hyung-ju.

It forms part of Enec’s long-term strategy to invest in R&D to support continuous improvement and innovation in the nuclear sector, as well supporting application of nuclear energy industry technology and expertise in related sectors, added Al Hammadi.
