UAE Innovates activities are critical to these efforts and represent an entry point for entrepreneurs to get involved in government innovation. A key goal shared by UAE Innovates and Global Village is to link cultures and enhance cooperation and integration. We can achieve this by providing platforms to showcase the most impactful innovations and to highlight their importance to the rest of society."
