The inaugural event of the Middle East & Africa ESD Forum was held on Sunday 31st July 2016 at the offices of Neuro Technology Middle East FZE, in Dafza, Dubai. The forum meet was attended by representatives from over 10 companies, including Emirates Aviation, DEWA, Olympus etc. Middlesex University Dubai is proud to be associated as the first university member of the forum. The inauguration was done by guest of honor Eng. Maryam Ali Althani, Ex-Chair, IEEE UAE Section. The forum is being organized by Mr. Satish V.P. the MD of Neuro Technology who are the premier ESD consultants & trainers in the Middle East & Africa. Santhosh Menon, lecturer, DCEI, Middlesex University Dubai attended the event on behalf of the university. 

ESD - Electro Static Discharge- is one of the most notorious and yet unappreciated culprit in many an industrial accident and component damage causing hefty damages to the industry. Yet, due to a lack of awareness about the potential for damage and relatively minor safety precautions needed to prevent them, it is still a constant threat in the region. The fundamental objective of the MEA ESD Forum is to strengthen and promote ESD awareness and training activities in the region. The university would like to take an active role in promoting such awareness and it would be complementary to the Engineering programs (Beng) being run at the University. The Middlesex University Dubai has the distinction of being the first fully Certified ESD compliant electro-physical lab in a university in the Middle East region. The MEA ESD forum would be an ideal platform to discuss the various ESD concerns for right solutions from the industry experts. Middlesex University Dubai would be working closely with the forum to help it achieve these objectives and wishes the forum all success for its initiatives.
