Industry-University Collaboration: TwinTraining of Energy-, Mineral- and Water Resources in the MENA Region

Schmidt, Christina; Hilgers, Christoph ORCID iD icon

Abstract (englisch):

The TwinTraining project is a BMBF-funded initiative aiming at increasing the employability of North African graduates via the cooperation of German and local industry and academia representatives. In this context, courses have been developed jointly with industry professionals. Modules have been implemented at Ibn Zohr University, Agadir, and the University Tunis El Manar, for example “Reservoir Modeling” will be performed in collaboration with Schlumberger. While industry partners gain access to better academic analytical facilities and employable young graduates, local academia is enabled to provide a broader spectrum of hands-on research. Finally, we aim to tie direct and long-term collaboration of industry and universities in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa).

Discussions with the local universities led to the determination of crude subjects adjusted to the specific needs and industries in place, e.g. mining geology in Agadir, Morocco, and reservoir geology in Tunis, Tunisia. Our partner companies are on the one hand consultants such as Geothermal Engineering GmbH dealing with solutions in hydrogeology and geothermics. ... mehr
