After a successful debut in 2020, Software AG has launched the second edition of Future Disruptors Award, a programme for undergraduate students from UAE universities. This year students will create and celebrate prototypes under the theme ‘Enriching lives, improving experiences’. The programme is intended to spark creativity that delivers cutting-edge and innovative real-world solutions and play an active role in today’s digital world.

Recognised projects will give students the opportunity to showcase their solutions at the 41st edition of GITEX Technology Week this year.

According to Software AG, the scheme aims to nurture innovation by bridging the gap between the current developments in the corporate world with increasing expectations of the ‘digitally-native’ workforce and citizens of tomorrow. Participants are encouraged to address real-world challenges through IoT, AI and machine learning based innovative models. Anchored by Software AG, the programme empanels advocates of leading organisations in the region as members of the jury.

Rami Kichli – Vice President, Gulf and Levant, Software AG, said: “After the overwhelming response in its first year, we are thrilled to open the award to all universities in the UAE this year under the pre-requisite guidelines. We strongly feel that students are catalysts of a paradigm shift in any industry. This belief has led us at Software AG to create a sustained bridge platform for these students to distinguish them in today’s competitive workforce and rub shoulders with the corporate world. They inspire and dare us to think outside the norm which is the only way to break the corporate glass ceiling for all of us. I look forward to exciting knowledge sharing times ahead with all of them.”

The 2021 Future Disruptors Award is open for entries till April 30th 2021.
