Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
Following the 2016 launch of the ‘UAE Strategy for the Future’ by the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE Ministry of Interior has initiated series of activities and implemented new programs and policies nationwide to drive and stimulate the culture of innovation amongst various government entities to focus their ideas on how to anticipate and better prepare for the future.
This key initiative compliments UAE’s National Innovation Strategy that aims to place the UAE among the most innovative nations in the world.
With the world becoming increasingly digitalised with many new disruptive ideas and technologies, it is imperative for governments of today to develop strategies to help them not only understand them and the threats they pose. But to anticipate solutions that will ensure these threats are accurately predictable, secured against, and the opportunities are taken advantage of.
The 2nd MOI Innovation and Foresight Summit will therefore be providing a platform for UAE government entities such as the Ministry of Interior, Law Enforcement agencies, National Security agencies, Regulatory bodies, Police Forces, Military and Defense, Customs and Port Authorities, Research Institutes, regional and international experts to deliberate on how innovation can be effectively channeled in the digital era towards solving future challenges, today.
