Инновационные гранты Expo 2020 Dubai

EXPO 2020 DUBAI is a celebration for all,  a global destination where everyone can learn, innovate, create progress,  and have fun by sharing ideas and working together. Each Expo revolves around its own theme to leave a lasting impact on the path of human progress, thus making each Expo a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Through our theme, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’,  Expo 2020 Dubai provides a platform to encourage creativity, innovation and collaboration in the areas of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. Expo 2020 Dubai provides a one-of-a-kind global  stage for showcasing and sharing novel solutions and demonstrating projects that – irrespective of their size and geography – can improve, if not transform, the lives of people around the world.
