INNOVATION MONTH AT KU
February 2019 is UAE Innovation Month and Khalifa University is celebrating with a calendar of events and activities designed to inspire, educate, and engage the public on innovations in science, arts, and engineering.
Achieving meaningful innovation – the development of new ideas, devices or methods that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs – is a major goal of KU.
That is why KU has developed 16 specialized research centers focused on some of the most important sectors and challenges, like its Aerospace Research and Innovation Center (ARIC), and its Healthcare Engineering Innovation Center (HEIC).
KU’s focus on innovation in science has made it the UAE’s top-ranked university time and again, with the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2019 ranking KU 1st in the UAE and 2nd in the Arab region, as well as top in the categories of Research and Industry Income.
Khalifa University’s excellence in achieving innovative outcomes has attracted over US$80 million in industry and government sponsored research contracts with more than 50 organizations based in the UAE and worldwide.
We have produced +70 issued patents, +300 invention disclosures, and published +4,930 articles, with nearly 40% of publications in the top 10% of scientific journals.
Khalifa University does all of this and more to strengthen the UAE’s position as a global hub for innovation, enhance the development of innovative ideas and capabilities, and create a widespread culture of innovation in the UAE.
