Other areas include the importance of vaccinations, social distancing and wearing facemasks in the fight against COVID-19, worldwide impact of COVID-19 on economies and industries, and the importance of epidemiology during the pandemic and its impact on our lives.


Details on the wide range of petroleum sciences and why research in the UAE’s strategic oil and gas sector is important will also be offered at one of the webinars. The webinars will additionally focus on cutting-edge technology areas such as transmission electron microscopy and role of nanoparticles, as well as wireless power transfer and how it can change lives in an age of electric vehicles (EVs).


Topics such as the importance of team dynamics for a successful start-up journey, and the role of exponential technologies, organizations and platform business models, as well as the need for a systematic approach to foster creativity and the innovation process, will also be covered.
