(2015-06-02) US multinational company General Electric and Lúrio University (UniLúrio) will collaborate to develop scientific and technical activities at the Mozambican institution of higher education, with an emphasis on the area of hydrocarbons.

The partnership was formalised last Friday with the signing of a memorandum of understanding and comes at a time when major gas reserves were discovered in the Rovuma Basin, northern Mozambique.

Lúrio University is a public institution of higher education that is located in northern Mozambique, one of the most dynamic and energy-rich regions with the largest population index in the country.

The agreement was signed by the Dean of UniLúrio, Francisco Noa, and the president and chief executive of General Electric in Mozambique, Marco Caccavale. It aims to increase the capacity of the laboratories at UniLúrio’s School of Engineering – located in the city of Pemba, Cabo Delgado – through support in equipment supply and training of human resources, in order to enhance the quality of engineering research technical and professional activities.

According to the memorandum, both institutions intend to cooperate in areas such as Education, Training and Professional Development of teachers and students of
UniLúrio.

The staff of General Electric should also be able to benefit from technical and vocational training courses in areas that are of mutual interest.
