Competitions Announcement

     

** Important Notice **

NRF received many requests to extend the deadline for the U-IRCA 2011 competition. As the problem appears to be the signing of the MoU, it has been decided that the deadline for submitting the MoU itself will be extended until 28 November 2011. ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS STILL NEED TO BE SUBMITTED BY 14 NOVEMBER 2011, 13:00 AT THE LATEST. The MoU will have to be sent to grants@nrf.ae no later than 28 November 2011 @13:00. Failure to submit the MOU will mean elimination from the competition.
