Canon to host Frontiers of Innovation Forum in partnership with MEED

A panel discussion on “The endless possibilities of the 3D printing market“
Canon Middle East will host the second edition of “Frontiers of Innovation Forum 2017.” The forum in partnership with MEED will be held on Sept. 28 and aims to provide a platform for driving innovation, share ideas, gain insights, experiences and generate solutions.
This year, the Frontiers of Innovation Forum will focus on important updates and discussions on the “Dubai cybersecurity strategy,” “The role of digital transformation in the development of UAE,” “Entrepreneurs and SMEs and their role in unlocking innovation across the UAE,” “Role of private sector in driving the innovation agenda of the UAE,” and “Interpretation of innovation in a smart city environment.”
Anurag Agrawal, managing director, Canon Middle East, said: “Canon’s Frontiers of Innovation Forum acts as a conduit in bringing the government and businesses together with the objective of identifying opportunities on how to continuously innovate and contribute to the UAE’s Vision 2021 goals. Canon will continue to deliver the best possible offering for its customers and support the larger vision of the government through ongoing innovation.”
“We again thank MEED to have partnered with us as we continue to strive to find innovative solutions to build smart cities,” he added.
The Frontiers of Innovation Forum 2016 findings focused on big data and the Internet of Things combined with the latest technology and developments affecting all aspects of our lives, bringing about efficiencies and change.
“As the UAE plays an increasingly important role in the global economy it is imperative that it remains efficient and competitive on the world stage. Engaging with the private sector to promote innovation and develop new technologies is key to maintaining this edge, while at the same time helping expand new sectors that create white collar employment opportunities,” said Richard Thompson, editorial director, MEED.
The UAE government has put the development of a culture of innovation at the heart of its Vision 2021 strategy as it seeks to develop the country as a knowledge hub and create more efficient cities that meet the aspirations of future generations. Canon said it is perfectly positioned to make an important contribution to the success of the UAE’s vision.
