The UAE Government Development and the Future Office launched the ‘Futureneers’ initiative, a national platform that brings together young Emirati talents from various strategic fields to design ideas and solutions aiming to enhance the UAE’s readiness for the future.

The Futureneers initiative employs the capabilities and potential of young Emirati talents in vital sectors in order to explore opportunities, create proactive solutions to future challenges, develop innovative ideas, and engage in designing policies and initiatives that promote the country’s readiness for the future.

As per reports, this initiative achieves the leadership’s directives charted in the “UAE’s 10 Principles for the Next 50 Years,” a strategic roadmap aiming to invest in human capital as the main driver for future growth, and reflects the UAE’s vision to harness skills of young Emirati talents, leverage their energy, and attend to their aspirations towards the future.
