The Competitiveness Office of Abu Dhabi (COAD), part of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED), is collaborating with Prototype Interactive, a UAE-based digital transformation firm, to enable inventors to realise their ideas into digital and technological applications, which can contribute to building a smart and sustainable economy.

According to a report published by the state news agency, WAM, the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed between COAD and Prototype Interactive, allows inventors to access facilities and workshops of the firm to gain knowledge and receive professional training and assistance in building, designing, and developing digital and technological applications.

Inventors, backed by ADDED’s Takamul programme, will utilise Prototype Interactive’s latest technologies and techniques to develop their ideas and benefit their experts’ consultations and methods adopted to measure digital strategies and implement impactful designs.

They will also have access to workshops organised by Prototype on production of digital transformation’s prototypes.

Hala Al Ameri, ED of COAD, said, “Signing this MoU is in line with ‘Abu Dhabi Innovates’, the innovation ecosystem framework launched by ADDED back in May. We are on constant lookout for best-in-class partners to enhance capabilities of inventors and innovators and ensure they have suitable environment, including space and equipment required for discovery and development of their innovations and inventions. This MoU accentuates the role played by Takamul programme in supporting inventors and promoting innovation culture. Since it was launched in 2011, Takamul has been witnessing increasing growth in number of inventors supported and patents registered annually.”

So far, the Takamul programme has evaluated 1,013 patent applications, and supported 377 applications that meet the conditions for patent registration, as reported by WAM.

The programme also spreads awareness on key stages of innovation, including legal aspects to protect inventors’ rights such as intellectual property (IP) and ways to harness and boost commercial value of inventions.

Alexander Rauser, CEO of Prototype, said “Prototype is specifically excited about the partnership with ADDED as it will provide access to our DSX framework to the program participants and create a new way of ideation and creation. Our proprietary methodology has been used by hundreds of organisations and startups to launch digital transformation programme’s and proven itself as effective, fast, and agile. We see this being in line with the vision of ADDED and their programme participants.”
