“Enabling practical and applicable innovation that delivers results”

Basic and applied research contributes in building a wealth of knowledge that enhances ICT advancement, as knowledge capital is considered the key driver of innovation that can give the UAE a leading position in the global marketplace. ICT Fund provides generous grants to research projects that lead to the development of applied R&D and to the acquisition of patents. Furthermore, in partnership with universities and research organizations, the Fund actively supports the commercialization of applied R&D, leading to the establishment of start-ups in the ICT sector. ICT Fund extends funds based on merit, notwithstanding any prior approvals, or the current level of funding recipients. Each project has its own parameters based on the scope of the project, and the funding is decided according to the proposal. Among the key funded projects in this field include but not limited to:

  • Emirates ICT Innovation Center EBtIC
  • The National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) – UAEU
