The 6th International Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a pioneering initiative organized by the University of Sharjah (College of Business Administration and College of Computing & Informatics) under the patronage of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and in cooperation with the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The Forum is in line with the UAE Government's approach to adopting innovation in education and business.
The Forum represents an ideal platform for students to learn about the best innovative practices, and to use these practices in their education and in their careers. The Forum is also an opportunity to review practical experience in the field of entrepreneurship, and to instill a culture of innovation in the minds of students.
The Forum is an ideal platform for instilling innovation in the minds of students as a way of life that leads to professional success, and a beacon that nourishes their ideas and abilities and helps them to creatively excel before they enter the labor market and face its challenges. The Forum will also contribute to discussing the best global practices adopted in the fields of academic and professional innovation, and informing students on entrepreneurship and its importance as a career path that can be an alternative to traditional jobs.
The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCI) sponsors the innovation competition and offers 100,000 aed cash prizes to the winners.
