OryxLabs: From UAE’s Innovation Hub to Global Recognition

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been actively diversifying its economy, increasing its non-oil sector in the past years. To establish itself as a global powerhouse, the country has been investing heavily in various industries, and innovation has become a cornerstone of its economic system. These strategic initiatives include the “We The UAE 2031 Vision,” which provides UAE with the roadmap to achieve its long-term strategic objectives to transform the country into a knowledge-based economy. The vision strongly emphasizes technology, cybersecurity, and digital transformation.
