The President of Notre Dame University (NDU), Walid Mussa, and the Director General of the state-run Industrial Research Institute (IRI), Bassam Frenn, signed last Monday a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the university and the center that entails “cooperation and exchange of expertise especially in the fields of research, laboratory testing and food safety”. According to a statement issued by NDU, “The center and the university will work in partnership based on the specialty of food safety towards developing the agro-food sector in Lebanon as a positive factor in realizing a balanced regional growth”. During the signing ceremony, Business Advisor, Ramzi Bhamduni, explained the significance of the agreement which “will cover the creation of a Food Advisory Unit whose role is to provide advice, guidance and to implement food development projects for food companies and industrial groups in Lebanon”. Similarly, Frenn emphasized “the importance of building bridges between universities and the academic world on the one hand, and the labor market and the industrial, production and services sectors on the other.” (Al Mustaqbal, May 16, 2017)
