University of Sharjah has recently joined as a Community Partner for Technology
Innovation Pioneers (TIP), which is an initiative by the Federal Ministry of Economy
and Department of Economic Development (DED) in Abu Dhabi. TIP aims to make
the UAE a world-class hub for innovation by attracting the most talented experts
from across the world. The partnership agreement was signed by Prof. Maamar
Bettayeb, Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Studies. In September 2019, a
joint lecture was given to the UoS students and faculty by Mr. Nader Hariz, Director
of Business Development at TIP Program, and Dr. Mohamed Al Hemairy, Head of
Technology Transfer Office at the University.
The TIP Program brings new exciting challenges that add value to the UAE and the
global innovation ecosystem, and invites inventors and entrepreneurs to provide
technologically innovative solutions to solve the current global challenges in
sectors such as EnergyTech, EnviroTech, and Healthcare.
