Expo 2020 Dubai And Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation Collaborate
(22 November 2017)
The agreement was signed on the first day of the MBRF-organised Knowledge


Expo 2020 Dubai and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that aims to integrate the contents, programmes and initiatives of Expo 2020 into the UAE’s ambition of establishing itself as a regional hub for knowledge, education and research.

The agreement was signed on the first day of the MBRF-organised Knowledge Summit 2017 in Dubai, by His Excellency Jamal bin Huwaireb, Managing Director, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation and Najeeb Al Ali, Executive Director, Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.

Under the MoU, the MBRF and Expo will focus collaboration on initiatives related to knowledge, including the Knowledge Summit, as well as the development of knowledge and cultural elements leading up to and during Expo 2020.

Efforts to engage the community, particularly those related to youth and educational institutions, will also be bolstered through the agreement.

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation was founded by the Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, after whom it was named, in 2007. It was set up to create knowledge-based societies throughout the Arab region by funding research projects, activities and initiatives.

It nurtures ideas and innovation while focusing on its main pillars of education, enterprise and research and development. The Foundation has implemented pioneering programmes aimed at establishing Dubai and the UAE as a centre for knowledge and research.

Najeeb Al Ali said: “Knowledge is a main pillar of Expo 2020 Dubai and it is evident in our theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. We are privileged to have MBRF as our reference on knowledge as we create the content of Expo 2020. Our collaboration will enrich the programmes and initiatives that millions of visitors from around the world will experience in 2020.

“MBRF and Expo 2020 share common goals of diffusing knowledge and innovation, enhancing understanding and awareness of our subthemes – Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability – and fostering a strong social and cultural legacy in the UAE and beyond. Our work together will help create a meaningful legacy.”

Jamal bin Huwaireb said: “Knowledge is a central plank of the UAE national strategy and it is crucial for all UAE organisations to work together to build positive capacity towards a knowledge society.

“We will offer Expo enabling tools in the field of knowledge and knowledge management. Expo 2020, a destination that brings together countries and organisations, will help us achieve our goals in enhancing the UAE’s position on the world map.”

The Knowledge Summit 2017 (21-22 November) is a platform that brings together decision-makers, thinkers, experts and pioneers in the knowledge industry, as well as scientists, academics and specialists from all around the world, to discuss pressing issues and challenges, review best practices and experiences, and offer solutions to meet the challenges.

Opening on 20 October 2020, Expo 2020 is expected to record 25 million visits, with 70 percent from outside the UAE – the largest proportion of international visitors in the 166-year history of World Expos.

More than 200 participants, including nations, multilateral organisations, corporations and educational institutions, are expected to take part.
