NGC supports UWI research initiatives
The National Gas Company of T&T (NGC) has partnered with the University of the West Indies (UWI) in a major initiative targeting research, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Together, the four programmes will strengthen UWI’s research capacity, popularize its research output, and enhance the campus’ linkages to the corporate world. The MOU was signed on February 6th by NGC’s President, Indar Maharaj and UWI Principal, Professor Clement Sankat.
Witnessing the signing of the historic initiative were NGC’s Vice President, Human and Corporate Relations, Cassandra Patrovani-Sylvester; NGC’s Head—Community Relations (Ag) Wynda Chandler; UWI Professor, Surendra Arjoon of the Department of Management Studies; Professor Errol Simms, Dean—Faculty of Social Science; Lauren Boodhoo of the Office of Research Development and Knowledge Transfer; Shiraz Mohammed, Manager—Strategic Transformation Projects and Stacy Kennedy from the Office of the Campus Principal.
