The UAE Happiness Index is one of the key national performance indictors in UAE Vision 2021 for a cohesive society and a preserved identity.
To contribute to the government’s efforts towards realizing UAE Vision 2021, the United Arab Emirates University has established the Emirates Center for Happiness Research (ECHR), to provide appropriate, effective, evidence-based and implementable methods and alternatives to enhance happiness and positivity and resolve the factors affecting them. The center will offer services to agencies and to the UAE community.
The National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) has been initiated by the UAEU and the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, represented by the ICT Fund. Its creation is primarily motivated by the UAEU’s need to strengthen its role as a contributor of knowledge and education to the vital needs of the nation in the fields of space science and space technology and to become a significant space science and technology hub in the region. The main focuses of the NSSTC are research and development, higher education and community outreach. The priorities of the center are threefold: excellence in space science, engineering leadership in space technologies, and providing innovative solutions to societal challenges.
Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Center for Health Sciences has been established at the United Arab Emirates University. This world-class center will become the leading UAE Center providing a combination of research, teaching, professional development, policy analysis and consultancy for health. The Center will build on the work already undertaken at the College of Medicine, UAEU and will concentrate on high quality translational and applied research that addresses national and regional health issues.
The Khalifa Center for Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology (KCGEB) was inaugurated in 2014 by His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs. Research at the KCGEB is focused on exploring flora of the arid region to generate scientific knowledge to address the global challenges in the food security and sustainable agriculture practice through genomics, genetic engineering and biotechnological innovations. Our work is supported by strategic funding from the Ministry of Presidential Affairs.
Emirates Center for Mobility Research (ECMR), known previously as The Roadway, Transportation and Traffic Safety Research Center (RTTSRC) was established in June 2004 at UAE University, with the objective to boost the university’s role in serving the community developmental goals in the fields of road engineering, transportation and traffic safety.
RTTSRC’s strength revolves around its five Research Groups, which comprehends a wide spectrum of expertise in various areas relevant to Transportation. These are namely: Efficient Infrastructure, Green Mobility, Connected & Autonomous Mobility (CAM), Integrated Mobility, and Safe Mobility.
The UAEU Center for Public Policy and Leadership aims to offer the best solutions and innovative approaches in dealing with various challenges facing the United Arab Emirates and its society, as well as to become a key partner in excellence and innovation in the fields of public policy, governance, and leadership through achieving four main objectives:
The national prosperity and economic vitality and growth depend upon the availability of adequate future supplies of water and energy. Therefore, the UAE Government’s vision for sustainable future includes the two most critical resources, water and energy as two of its primary pillars. Following the national interest, the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) initiatives in research and innovation give high priority to the conservation and sustainability of water resources and energy.
Inaugurated on 14th, November, 2016, the Institute was established due to growing efforts towards gaining accreditation and assessment both nationally and internationally. The absence of a collective benchmark and sharing of resources amongst higher education institutions in the region created the need for a body to oversee this.
Rethinking the relationship between higher education institutions is essential for the promotion of better learning. Until now, accreditation and assessment of higher education has been compliance based. One of the contributions of the Institute is to turn existing compliance-based models into innovative vehicles for the development of better learning.
The world is experiencing an implausible, explosive growth in digital content and information. This massive amount of data is expected to fundamentally change the research in traditionally qualitative disciplines. Equally, the commercial world is being transformed by a focus on big data, with companies competing on data analytics. The global big data market size was valued at around USD 25.67 billion in 2015 and is expected to hit more than 90 billion U.S. dollars in 2026. We are entering a new era of big data analytics and data-intensive computing which has been recognized worldwide.
The UAE is one of the most prepared countries in the region to adopt Big Data technologies because the government has already built a solid technology infrastructure over the past two decades. Investing in big data analytics can radically transform all government services in all fields such as healthcare, medicine, transport, and society in general. The next challenge requires qualified Emirati cadres well-versed with Big Data and Analytics to meet the supreme national interests, affirming that Big Data Analytics applications will engender revenues and provide fresh opportunities for graduates and the national economy.
In response to both technological and scientific challenges as well as the shortage of highly skilled data scientists and analysts which have been acknowledged by various industries and governmental bodies, BIDAC was established as an interdisciplinary center. The center is expected to contribute to the preparation of qualified Emarati cardes well-versed with big data analytics to meet the nation's interests and benefits.
