UAE Science Symposium (UK & Gulf countries)

The Symposium will be held at the UAE University in Al Ain from 30th October to 1st November 2017. It will be attended by scientists from research institutions and start-up companies/industries from the Gulf countries and the UK. It will invite open discussions and potential investment to encourage the creation of UK-Gulf collaboration to access the deep pool of information & technology sharing, which will in turn lead to benefits for both the Gulf and the UK and open the door for commercial opportunities. We are asking researchers to present their stimulating work and ideas related to clean and renewable energies.
