The UAE is gearing up for a month-long event that celebrates innovation with over 1,000 activities to be organised across all seven emirates, it was announced on Tuesday.
The UAE Innovation Month, previously known as the UAE Innovation Week, is the largest celebration of its kind that seeks to celebrate the best in ideas on innovation from the spectrum of government and private sectors, as well as from the public.
This year, the national event will be kicking off from Abu Dhabi and moving through each emirate, with major events to be open to the public throughout the month, an official has announced.
The UAE Innovation Month and its activities has been also linked to the Year of Zayed and will highlight the role of the late Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan as an innovator.
“What makes this edition special is that it will be going on for an entire month and moving from one emirate to another, starting from Abu Dhabi on February 1 and ending in Dubai on February 28. It will be a month filled with over 1,000 innovative events and activities,” she said.
Starting with Abu Dhabi in the first week, she said the second week of the innovation activities will take place in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) and Fujairah, moving on to Sharjah, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain (UAQ) in the third week and ending in Dubai during the last week.
Al Hashemi said the month will also witness seminars, forums, workshops and other activities, all focused on innovation across various locations, such as the “Innovate” event to be organised in Abu Dhabi, the launch of the Google Centre for Innovation in UAE University, the National Science, Technology and Innovation (NSTI) Festival for students at the festival arena, which will see the participation of students from all across the UAE, among others in workshops and talks.
She also announced the Innovation Truck which will move along the innovation route in each emirate and will be positioned at the main gatherings in each emirate.
“The moving platform of innovation is going to be a hub and will serve as a place where the big announcements will be made and will have workshops organised. We have also the snap-card Innovation Safari which people can participate in through our social media platforms to win prizes through vending machines,” she said.
