InnCuVation Forum 2021
HCT’s inaugural InnCuVation Forum 2021, to be held virtually from February 21-24, 2021, under the theme of Reach… Connect … Launch.
The forum perfectly interlocks with the official nationwide initiative of UAE Innovates 2021. As you will be aware this national celebration is borne out of the annual UAE Innovation Month, which is one of the world’s largest innovation festivals.
The HCT’s InnCuVation Forum 2021 is the perfect manifestation of HCT’s commitment to embedding Innovation and Entrepreneurship in its core teaching and learning activities, and its desire to promote a culture of innovation across the UAE in support of the National Innovation Strategy.
It is a unique opportunity for innovators & game changers; academia; and industry & government representatives to collaborate and discuss current issues, trends and world-class research and innovative startups via a series of interactive speeches, panel discussions, and presentations in four strategic sectors, being Health, Sustainability, Education and Emerging Technologies.
These four overarching topics will be addressed on Day 1-3 of the Forum, which will see participants being involved in Strategic Outlook and Inspire & Ideate sessions. The final day will be devoted to being a Startup Pitch Day for budding entrepreneurs to ‘soapbox’ their daring innovations which cover the four sectors.
Ultimately, the Forum aims to explore opportunities for innovation in each strategic sector (Reach); to inspire new collaborations between the stakeholders (Connect); and to stimulate HCT’s contribution to innovation and wealth creation in the UAE via applied research and startups (Launch). The scale focus of this forum will undoubtedly attract attention from the world of business, technology and innovation, as well as from media, across the UAE.
