Applications are now open for the third batch of the Dubai Future Experts Programme, which aims to develop a pool of Emirati futurists across government entities.
The initiative led by the Dubai Future Foundation is designed to empower local talent for future-oriented research and projects.
The 18-month programme is open to middle and top-level government employees across key sectors.
Its third session will begin in September and will include two modules, each running for six months.
The modules and content of the programme have been developed by leading national and global future experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, and CEOs.
"Dubai’s vision is to be the leading city of the future, and this requires radical changes and bold decisions. This reflects the goal of this strategic programme," said His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai's Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai.
The registration for the new batch of the programme, which is a collaboration between the Dubai Future Foundation and The Executive Council of Dubai is open until July 15.
Participants will be selected from the Dubai government employees specialising in strategic design and forward-thinking.
The programme's first batch witnessed the graduation of 18 experts from 13 government entities in various sectors, such as economic development, trade, health, security, justice, governance, culture and tourism, transportation, aviation and other key strategic sectors in Dubai.
