Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF), launched the Dubai Future Fellowship programme on April 9.

According to the Dubai Media office, the programme aims to engage current and future economic leaders to contribute towards shaping Dubai’s policies, regulations, and business practices and further enhancing the city’s leading regional and global role as an incubator for the most promising innovators of the future.

Leading experts, entrepreneurs, innovators, and members of international organisations and institutions will join the Dubai Future Fellowship programme, which is focused on consolidating Dubai’s leadership and influence in the development of key sectors.

Sheikh Hamdan said: “By establishing the Dubai Future Fellowship, overseen by the Dubai Future Foundation, we aim to provide a platform for impactful dialogue on creating a better future for all. The initiative is another significant step in Dubai’s journey to becoming a leading city of the future by fostering strong partnerships.”

Sheikh Hamdan added: “Dubai continues to invest in designing the future. This initiative will act as a source and sounding platform for new initiatives and opportunities to strengthen Dubai’s economic competitiveness and its emergence as one of the world’s best places to live in. The ‘fellows’ in the programme will be trusted advisors who can help us develop new concepts that will boost Dubai’s readiness to integrate changes in the economy, technology, education, and all aspects of our daily lives.

“Identifying, working with, and trusting those who have intimate knowledge of Dubai and what is happening around us is a crucial part of our efforts to foresee, design and execute the future. These efforts are underpinned by the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”

Dubai Future Fellowship: What it entails

Sheikh Hamdan said: “The fellows will work together to anticipate the future of key sectors, identify and harness opportunities, and study potential challenges. The ‘fellows’ will also shed light on the most significant global transformations, emerging technologies and new economic sectors.”

The Dubai Future Fellowship programme will cover diverse specialised fields including health, education, technology, entrepreneurship, retail, environment, banking, commerce, real estate, media and entertainment, law, arts, tourism, hospitality, sports, and space, among others.

It represents an international network of distinguished personalities and experts who are known for their achievements in government, economic, technological, and future sectors. The network will be instrumental in developing and implementing future-oriented strategies in Dubai and the UAE.

Focused on the future

The Dubai Future Fellowship programme will contribute to enhancing Dubai’s ranking in global competitiveness indices by providing recommendations on various key sectors, as well as addressing challenges and opportunities and suggesting new initiatives to further develop these sectors.

The fellows will hold regular meetings and workshops to discuss the future of key sectors in Dubai, in addition to preparing annual reports and launching specialised programmes and initiatives.

Further, the members will help identify key sectors that will drive the future of Dubai’s economy. They will also recommend solutions to issues and facilitate collaboration between the public and private sectors, both locally and internationally, to achieve this goal.
