As a critical component of ATRC, we liaise with leading stakeholders to articulate problem statements, design research projects and tackle challenges that resonate with society’s needs, manage advanced tech program, and ensure that Abu Dhabi’s technology research fulfils forward-looking capabilities locally and globally.
With extensive investments behind our work, we explore the depths and breadths of possibility at the edge of science, helping our researchers succeed with targeted resources and support.
Embracing a culture of exploration, we pursue high-risk, high-impact ROIs, judging our impact by transformative successes, and not by a ‘trial and error’ journey.
