The UAEU Science and Innovation Park (SIP) was launched as part of UAEU strategic
plan 2017-2021 in alignment with the UAE Vision 2021 national agenda and the National
Innovation Strategy to become a global hub for research, innovation and entrepreneurship
to foster the transitioning of the UAE economy towards a Knowledge Economy.
The SIP aims to train and support the new generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and change-makers, as well as promote a knowledge economy by supporting scientific research, building strategic partnerships with industries
and commercializing innovative products.
It also supports infusing an entrepreneurship mindset and building capabilities to start and grow global businesses in the UAE’s critical areas to the benefit of the community.
The SIP provides innovation champions (individuals, companies, institutions, government) with a collaborative platform
and an enabling environment for research cooperation and safe innovation. Furthermore,
the UAEU Science and Innovation Park provides innovators with opportunities to disseminate
the outcomes of their research amongst the park's resident companies and beyond, and
to expand the university’s intellectual property portfolio.
Additionally, the UAEU Science and Innovation Park provides students with opportunities to develop new ideas, prototypes, knowledge and skills
to build a business model, as well as provide them with networking and mentoring opportunities to enable them
to start and grow their own business.
The UAEU SIP was launch by the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler
of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Speaking on the occasion, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed stressed the importance of
co-ordination and interaction between the public and private sectors to pursue development
and attract the larger number of creative energies and minds who have innovative ideas
in different scientific streams and specializations like environment, health, education,
space and engineering.
''Such inventions will have positive impact on the development of our state and enable
it to compete globally in fields of research, invention, education and knowledge"
"As leaders, we believe in the ability and enthusiasm of our young generation for
advancing the UAE's place internationally. We promise them that they will be at the
centre of our attention, follow-up and unflinching support so as to catapult them
into a bright future,''
