‘The Collaborative’, an initiative to help researchers from academia, start-ups, and corporate work together towards the development of Bahrain, was launched recently.
The initiative was launched at the Second Digital Business Ecosystem Research Forum, which was organized by the University of Bahrain. It focused on researchers and practitioners, who explore information systems and digital entrepreneurship in the Kingdom and across the region.
On the sidelines of the event, the event’s chair, Dr. Noora Al Ghatem said: “The initiative was launched to create a common platform, where we can work together with the industry and public sector researchers while helping the entrepreneurs and the ecosystem. “It was launched because we saw that there was a need for us to work closely with industry and government. We came up with the idea for researchers from various sectors to come together in a platform and we defined the areas where we should work on together, whether it is by developing mutual studies or developing courses. “We even aim to include researchers from outside Bahrain who are experts in various fields,” she added.
