The second week of February marked a new milestone for Sharjah this year in the University City Hall, where the Academic and Private sector worked side to side with local and federal government entities to present innovation projects. Well renowned international companies conducted workshops showcasing the best practices in their field as well as training anyone who signed up in innovation. Government entities showcased new services that have been adapted to serve the community better as well as displaying a patent that was registered on the eve of the event. Highschool students to masters degree students also had their share of the participations, where they showed the UAE what their bright minds have to offer for the future. It was a testament to how widespread the culture of innovation is in the UAE and specifically in Sharjah and hopefully there will be even more progress in the years to come.
