TECOM Group announced that Dubai Biotechnology and Research Park (DuBiotech) and the Energy and Environment Park (EnPark) will operate under a joint umbrella to be known as Dubai Science Park.

The newly formed Dubai Science Park will continue to support both SMEs and global firms looking for a regional base for their Middle East operations.

DuBiotech was established in 2005 to support the Government of Dubai’s vision to transform the Emirate into a knowledge-based economy and develop the region’s life science sector, and its talent pool.

Since its launch, DuBiotech has grown into a thriving community of over 230 business partners including global industry players Pfizer, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Maquet, Firmenich and IFF.

Its sister park, EnPark, which was founded in 2007, has been widely recognised for its work in the field of sustainability and the development of environmental products and initiatives.

As a founding member of the Dubai Green Energy Partnership, EnPark has remained at the forefront of development in green energy, conservation and R&D.

Marwan Abdulaziz, executive director for Dubai Science Park (pictured), said: “DuBiotech and EnPark have been successful business communities for many years.

"However, as they have evolved, we have seen the opportunity to further drive growth and development and as such, we have combined the entities to achieve greater innovations and serve the wider business community.

“The new brand, Dubai Science Park, in partnership with more than 280 business partners, is focused on achieving our vision of becoming the most innovative and vibrant science community in the Middle East - a place where employees and their families can work, live and flourish.”
