The winners of the 2021 edition of the Huawei Seeds for the Future (SFTF) competition have been announced. The winning teams from UAE University, the University of Dubai and the American University of Ras Al Khaimah were announced at a ceremony presided over by Shunli Wang, Vice President of Huawei Middle East. Huawei’s Seeds for the Future programme aims to bridge the talent gap that exists in the technology sector.
Meanwhile, Huawei has announced that Seeds for the Future will continue its collaboration with UAE’s Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) and the ICT Fund. The partnership between the parties has provided thousands of Emirati youth the opportunity to accumulate ICT expertise and skills.
Wang said: “Huawei remains committed to enriching UAE’s talent development pipeline through open collaboration and public-private partnerships. Every year, Seeds of the Future empowers local youth to reimagine what technology can do to create a better world.”
Eng. Omar Al Mahmoud, CEO, ICT Fund, said: “The ICT Fund is dedicated to advancing the UAE’s ICT sector, which is the biggest driver of development in all other sectors. We realise the value of collaboration to pursue this mission. This is why we support such initiatives to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge taught at universities and the practical skills required by digital companies.”Click below to share this article
