Supporting your ambitions
A representative project is Imperial College London's Diabetes Centre in Abu Dhabi created with a local development partner (Mubadala). The Centre provides research, treatment and public health in diabetes, which is particularly prevalent in the Middle East.
It was essential that the legal structure allowed the centre to function effectively without exposing the college to the risks of providing treatment. Through a contractual joint venture, non-contracted hours, honorary contracts and clear demarcation, we were able to de-risk the project for Imperial. The centre is so successful that a second centre has been opened at nearby Al Ain.
