About the Competition

Abu Dhabi University launches it’s annual innovation competition for undergraduate students. This year’s theme is ‘Innovate Future Living’.

Digitalization and globalization have already changed the way we live our everyday lives. Social media and advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, smart connected objects and block-chain have enabled a new level of connectivity, interaction and real time services. However, more innovation and cross-industry collaboration is needed in order to tap on to the huge potential of these new technologies and phenomena.

Besides everyday living, also the traditional ways of working and doing business are changing radically. It is estimated that over 80% of today’s jobs will not exist in the future. This invites us to re-assess the ways we prepare our young for the future, the skills that we need for the 21st century, and the ways we organize business operations. It also raises questions regarding ethics, security, privacy and environment that can not be by-passed.
