MoU Between IADC And UNESCO-IHE11/02/2013
|An official Memorandum of Understanding between the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) and UNESCO-IHE, has formalised the cooperation between the organisations and given a broader perspective for the future. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by IADC President Peter de Ridder on behalf of the IADC and Rector/ Prof. A. Szöllösi-Nagy, PhD on behalf of UNESCO-IHE at an official ceremony in Delft, The Netherlands.|
IADC and UNESCO-IHE will continue to work together on projects such as short courses on ‘Coastal Engineering and Port Development' (CEPD) and the IADC’s week-long course on dredging and reclamation which has been presented annually at the UNESCO-IHE Delft campus for two decades.
In general, the IADC will offer the more than 14,500 UNESCO-IHE alumni students and alumni a wealth of technical knowledge through its publications. The IADC will also encourage its members to support research projects of UNESCO-IHE students. On the other hand, these UNESCO-IHE alumni from developing countries and countries in transition in Africa, Asia and Latin America can be of importance to the IADC as potential clients and employees.
