“The group aims to rehabilitate Emirati work force specialised in different areas of highly qualified scientific and applied research to support the national march in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi as well as to meet the needs of the UAE. Our objective is to contribute a significant number of national workforce to the labour market’s innovative and important positions.
