Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation Kick-Starts Inaugural Knowledge Week.

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) kick-started the inaugural Knowledge Week today (Sunday, November 19, 2017), set to take place on November 19-23, 2017, with a long list of knowledge events, workshops and discussions on the agenda.

The newly introduced event seeks to promote knowledge as a foundation for community building ahead of the highly anticipated fourth Knowledge Summit on November 21-22, 2017, at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Moreover, Knowledge Week allows university students, as well as government and private-sector employees, to get involved in the activities of the 2017 Summit, which bears the theme: "Knowledge and the Fourth Industrial Revolution".

Shamsa Al Bloushi, Vice Chairman of the Knowledge Summit Committee, said: "Organising the very first Knowledge Week allows us to facilitate the flow of knowledge and to play our part in empowering generations of innovative future leaders. The event aims to widen the audience and scope of the Knowledge Summit to include students and decision makers. The Summit is a premier knowledge event and a platform for the knowledge industry to come together and exchange perspectives and ideas. It also sheds light on the sector's progress, the challenges that lie ahead and the ideal solutions to address them."

"Knowledge Week is expected to attract a large audience from the public and private sectors, and will feature knowledge-focused events to raise awareness and enthusiasm for building knowledge-based societies in the region," Al Bloushi added.

Knowledge Week's agenda includes lectures, panel discussions, partnership agreements and debates on topics such as: Knowledge under the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Robotics, Digital Surgery, and Digital Revolution and the Media. These events are set to take place at MBRF's headquarters, Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC), Applied Secondary School, Zulekha Hospital Dubai, Etihad Museum and Al Bayan newspaper's offices.

The Knowledge Summit 2017 explores the history of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its effects on decision-making, in addition to the most important opportunities it offers, the challenges it poses and solutions to address them. The Summit sheds light on the transformations that the Fourth Industrial Revolution has catalysed in strategic sectors such as medicine, education, technology, the economy and media. It is an annual knowledge platform, bringing together decision makers, thinkers, experts and knowledge leaders, as well as scientists, academics and professionals from all around the world.
