Innovation Month 2020

The UAE will stage a month-long innovation festival in February, involving government entities, small businesses, multinationals and education bodies, intended to promote the UAE as a hub for creative thinking.

UAE Innovation Month, organised by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI), seeks to expand on the success of UAE Innovation Week, which ran for 5 years now had many focused activities, workshops staged across the seven emirates.

This year, each emirate will run its own programme of events and mini-festivals throughout February to celebrate innovative thinking by governments, businesses and entrepreneurs, and foster innovation among students and young people.

The event forms part of the UAE’s Innovation Strategy, published in 2014, which sets out the country’s ambition to become “the most innovative nation in the world”. Innovation – the concept of smart, imaginative thinking to devise inventions or solutions – is considered critical to helping the UAE diversify its economy and further cement its position as a global powerhouse.

The UAE Innovation Strategy clearly defines seven main sectors for innovation: space, transportation, aero, renewable energy, technology, health and education .
