On his page in the professional social network LinkedIn, Mr Hussain Al Mahmoudi, General Director of Sharjah Science and Technology Park, posted the following announcement:
«I’m proud to share with you phase two of the remarkable SkyWay innovation center at #SRTIP park. It’s the most futuristic project in transport and logistics in #MENA region. We at SRTIP park in collaboration with our partners are redefining transportation and logistics technologies»
That means that the goals set by SkyWay creator Anatoli Unitsky are closer than ever. The SWIC construction phases have already been reported about in the previous publications, and despite the corrections, made by the coronavirus pandemic in the construction plans, the work on creation of the Centre is now in full swing!
Mr Hussain Al Mahmoudi is the Director General of both the American University of Sharjah and SRTIP, established by decree of the Ruler of Sharjah, who directly appointed Mr Hussain to these positions with the aim of building a long-term cooperative relationship between industry, academia and the government sector, which should promote entrepreneurship and innovation.
We remind you that the main purpose of the SWIC creation was to provide the Middle East partners of the project with the opportunity to experience first-hand that Unitsky String Transport is the best solution to transport problems in the region of all available and perspective ones. The Centre is being built on the premises of SRTIP, based at the American University of Sharjah, which has been ranked among the top 500 universities in the world in the field of high technology research.
SWIC is aimed to become a research and production cluster, a kind of outpost of SkyWay Group of Companies when entering the market not only in the Middle East, but in Asia as a whole. It will present passenger and freight transport complexes of all types; there will be undergone testing and certification of the innovative infrastructure solutions and the rolling stock; there will be created its own research laboratories and scientific and technical base for further development of the Unitsky String Transport technology. And in the future, the Centre will be included in the SRTIP infrastructure, of which it is a part.
