    About the programme
    The Expo Live University Innovation Programme incentivises creative thinking, problem-solving and collaboration between university students to solve problems worth solving. It awards grants so that innovative and ingenious concepts, relevant to the UAE and the region, can be accelerated to validation and prototyping.

    The programme helps students generate viable solutions to real-world problems, either by supporting research and development or the creation of commercial applications. All solutions must be aligned with one of Expo 2020 Dubai’s three subthemes: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

    - Prizes range from AED 10,000 to AED 50,000 and are offered as further research and/or development grants. No individual cash prizes will be offered.

    - Funding levels depend on the stage of maturity and scalability of initiatives, as well as the extent of impact.

    - The programme offers networking opportunities, communications exposure and additional capacity-building options.

    - Successful participants will have chance to build partnerships with local governments, business incubators, accelerators, mentors and investors
