Sharjah24: Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTI Park) is preparing to host the MENA Innovation Technology Transfer Summit (MITT Summit) for the second time. This comes in a year when SRTI Park secured its position on the global stage by signing a memorandum of understanding with VITO, the influential Belgium-based research and technology organisation for sustainable development.
VITO is also the coordinator of G-STIC, the Global Sustainable Technology and Innovation Community, with whom SRTI Park has entered into a strategic partnership for organising the G-STIC Conference in Dubai and the MITT Summit in Sharjah. SRTI Park’s close association with these two major events will substantially elevate its international profile.

SRTI Park, the UAE’s premier research and innovation hub, will once again have the honour of hosting the MITT Summit in October this year. The centre is looking forward to welcoming global investors, government and private sector representatives, experts, entrepreneurs, academics, and other relevant stakeholders to discuss how to best shape the future of innovation and promote sustainability.

World Expo showcases knowledge and technologies that are crucial to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. It will be an accelerator and testing ground for breakthrough solutions designed to help the world create a better, post-pandemic future for all.
