KA1 UoD & UG

KA1 with University of Glasgow

The project tackles a critical issue in emerging economies: increasing universities' urban engagement roles and how they contribute to the development of sustainable cities in the context of the significant social, cultural, environmental, and economic concerns confronting the global south. Its primary technique is a collection of well-proven benchmarking methods, and it attempts to increase universities' capacity to contribute to city resilience against natural and man-made catastrophes. Supporting the development of physical infrastructure, ecological sustainability, and social inclusion are all examples of urban involvement (including of migrants). It seeks contributions from scientists and engineers, as well as the arts, environmental sciences, social sciences, and business studies.

It analyses the extent to which universities in six nations under investigation can adapt to societal needs, and how this may be improved and influenced through conversation with key stakeholders; it employs a collaborative team from the UK and developing economies.

The University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK. A world top 100 university. The University of Glasgow is a major research-led university. Over the last five centuries and more, they have constantly worked to push the boundaries of what’s possible. They have fostered the talents of seven Nobel laureates, two Prime Ministers and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister. They have welcomed Albert Einstein to give a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity. Scotland’s first female medical graduates completed their degrees here in 1894 and the world’s first ultrasound images of a foetus were published by Glasgow Professor Ian Donald in 1958. In 1840, they became the first university in the UK to appoint a Professor of Engineering, and in 1957, the first in Scotland to have an electronic computer. The KA1 has made it possible to for the University of Duhok to bridge with an excellent global university to exchange knowledge and foster best practices.
