Client: United Nations Development Program (UNDP)
Beneficiary: University of Mosul, Iraq
Under the Funding Facility for Stabilization Programme (FFS), the UNDP has played an instrumental role in helping the city of Mosul recover from the impact of ISIL’s four-year rule. This has entailed restoring critical infrastructure and services, creating short-term job opportunities, and building cohesion amongst the city’s fragmented communities. In this context of rebuilding, the UNDP has committed to restoring normal academic activity at the University of Mosul by renovating the laboratories that were destroyed during the period of prolonged conflict.
MEDILab procured and installed an array of state-of-the-art laboratory equipment for the Department of Livestock and Agriculture. This included UV-VIS spectrophotometers, slide microtomes, centrifuges, incubators, and other laboratory instruments to help facilitate the continuation of academic research activities. Our team of engineers also traveled to Mosul to personally conduct the installation process and train all department technicians on the operation and preventive maintenance of the new laboratory equipment.
From timely delivery and installation—to personalized training and maintenance instruction—our team facilitated the resumption of regular academic research and laboratory activities. By supporting sustainable education and empowering technicians with new skills, we were able to foster continued academic progress and innovation in agriculture and livestock in post-conflict Mosul.
