In this statement, the two organisations confirmed their intention to work together in planning and developing an Institute for Advanced Technology Integration in Oman and to support the negotiations with the Helmholtz Centres involved in this initiative.
“We are pleased that we have now confirmed our planned cooperation with The Research Council in writing,” Mlynek said. “We would like to support the establishment of the institute in various ways, including education and further training of scientific staff, planning of the laboratory equipment required and the joint development of a suitable research programme.”
The Helmholtz Association’s main role will involve providing support to TRC by sharing its extensive expertise in developing and running large-scale research institutes, as well as in designing strategic research programmes. The participating Helmholtz Centres and TRC will then finalise the details of the implementation plan and initiate joint pilot projects, which are due to start at the beginning of 2013.This rapid launch of projects in the fields of energy, water resources and new extraction technologies is designed to create the staffing, technical and structural basis for the development of the institute. The Sultanate of Oman is planning to invest a three-digit million figure in the long-term establishment of the institute.
With almost 34,000 employees in 18 research centres and an annual budget of approximately €3.4 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation. Its work follows in the tradition of the great natural scientist Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894).
