TRA Launches The ’TRA Award For Technological Innovations’
(26 November 2016)


The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) announced the launching of ‘TRA Award for Technological Innovations’, in collaboration with concerned entities in the country. This Award comes in line with the higher objectives of the UAE vision 2021, and the Government directives in enhancing the culture of innovation and creativity through encouraging competitiveness. The Award will be officially launched in a special press conference, which will be held in the first half of next year.

In this regards, H.E Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, Director General of TRA, said: ‘The Award project represents the wise leadership approach in stimulating the minds to create adaptable solutions for the existing challenges. It is consistent with the statement of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi that ‘creating sustainable wealth for the future generations will depend on science, knowledge, technology and innovation’.

 Al Mansoori added ‘Innovation has become an important part of our daily work in government and private entities. Technology has a growing role in this matter, particularly in telecommunication and information technology, which is considered the nervous system for the various developmental sectors in any society. The importance of this technology in transforming the ideas into reality that contributes in the welfare of society is no secret, and it is in line with the road map set by the Higher Policy for Innovation, which identified seven sectors including the technology sector. The notion of the TRA Award for Technological Innovations comes within this concept, as it aims to honor the innovators in this field, from all the forms of the ICT community in the UAE, which includes ICT companies, manufacturers of telecommunications and software and applications, individuals, and interested entities in the categories and elements of the Award.’

Moreover, H.E Majed Al Mesmar, Deputy Director General of TRA, said:’ TRA Award for Technological Innovations will be based on different areas. It will include several categories based on the latest technologies, products, and services that affect the major development such as smart cities, smart apps, systems and infrastructure, health, industry and education.’

Commenting on this subject, Engineer Saif Bin Ghelaita, Director of Innovation in TRA, said: ‘The launch of this award aims to honor the innovators of the country’s citizens in the areas that support the ICT sector on the national level. According to the plan developed by the working team on this matter, the award has several categories related to services, devices, technologies used in service provision, and other categories that contribute in the dissemination of innovations through adapting technologies for service improvement.’
