Dubai 10X initiative receives 79 proposals


Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) has announced 33 government entities in Dubai have proposed 79 project ideas in the third cycle of the Dubai 10X initiative.

Launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Dubai Future Foundation, Dubai 10X, which is overseen by DFF, aims to develop government services and drive a shift in mentality among public sector employees.

The initiative is in line with Dubai’s efforts to become the world’s most future-ready city.

Dubai 10X aims to encourage collaboration and promote experience exchanges, and some of the latest projects were the result of collaboration between up to 11 entities. Dubai Municipality participated in 16 projects, more than any other entity.

More than 25 workshops were organised as part of the third cycle of Dubai 10X. The sessions hosted teams from across the government who discussed and developed ideas and projects based on the need to prepare for future trends, challenges and opportunities.

His Excellency Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of DFF, said the initiative "has successfully promoted a culture of innovation and partnership among government entities, reflecting Dubai’s commitment to being at the forefront of shaping the future. These efforts are about keeping pace with evolving changes and leveraging new opportunities and technologies that serve society and further enhance our readiness for the future."
