Expo 2020 Dubai backs 26 Projects That improve Lives

Expo 2020 Dubai will take place from 20th October, 2020 to 10 April, 2021 and will be the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, MEASA, region.

Twenty six projects from 22 countries have been selected in the third cycle of Expo Live’s flagship Innovation Impact Grant Programme.

The aim is to helping such projects to reach their full potential. Expo Live provides each successful initiative with a grant of up to $100,000. Projects are also supported with business guidance and promotion and may have the chance to display their work to visitors at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Vice President of Expo Live at Expo 2020 Dubai, Yousuf Caires said, “Expo Live is based on a firm belief that innovation can come from anywhere to everyone. This is a major component of our redefinition of what a World Expo can and should do tap into its convening power well before the event to enable problem solvers around the globe to promote innovation and build partnerships that leave a lasting legacy not only in the UAE and the region but across the world.”
