Welcome to MENA Grad Show 2021

MENA Grad Show is a platform that brings together university innovators from the Middle East and North Africa who are working on solutions for social and environmental challenges. Launched in 2020 as part of Global Grad Show programme, it gives an international stage to the region’s young talent and opens avenues for discovery and exchange between academic institutions and geographies. The initiative is founded under the principles of equality, innovation and creativity as catalysts for a better world. This second edition saw project submissions by graduates across 41 universities in MENA, from which 60 of the most promising were selected to be part of a physical showcase, open to public during Dubai Design Week (Nov 8-13), and also here, digitally.
