As the world enters a constant innovation economy, those countries that embrace innovation will be clear winners. In response to the United Arab Emirates strategic vision, our charge to become The University of the Future is both exciting and humbling. United Arab Emirates University must rise to this challenge by building a more substantial research portfolio that is seamlessly integrated with our missions of teaching and service.
The Office of the Associate Provost for Research is dedicated to facilitating the
research and creative activities of all faculty and students at the university in
order to support this crucial aspect of their careers. We support increased research
productivity by helping to secure funding for research from inside the university
and outside. As the research stature of UAEU increases, we facilitate the protection
and exploitation of intellectual property, and work to place UAEU at the center of
a vibrant innovation ecosystem.
The key to innovation is for our university to be intellectually permeable; we strive
to build closer relationships with the government, industry, and the people, in order
to best serve the country, and the region.
