UAEU Participates in Nationwide Celebration of Innovation

The United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) participated in a nationwide celebration of the Month of Innovation. This was held across all seven emirates and consisted of a week-long program of innovative activities that were specific to each emirate.

Government agencies, private sector companies and individuals all helped to create a culture of innovation during the event.

The week at UAEU featured 55 technology-based activities including nine featured events such as research conferences, an exhibition, symposia, workshops, training sessions and lectures.

Professor Mohamed Albaili, Vice Chancellor of UAEU, opened the event by saying that, “at UAEU innovation has become deeply rooted in our culture and continues to grow in the minds of students, inventors and faculty who strive for better methods to develop a future with a more modern lifestyle.” He added that the university is committed to the UAE’s 2021 vision and drives innovation and development as the UAE seeks to become a global hub for innovation.

Highlights included a presentation from Danielle Nuding, an engineer on the Mars Mission M2020 project who works in the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. She gave a lecture on ‘Mars, the Red Planet’ that explored the characteristics of Mars and NASA’s attempts to reach the planet through their ‘Mars Mission – (M2020)’. Other highlights included the annual Research and Innovation Conference, a joint symposium on social robotics, and the launch of the Innovation Hub (powered by Google).
