UC Berkeley to establish innovation hub in Oman

The signing of this memorandum of understanding aims to achieve one of the key strategic objectives of the University City Project for attracting world-class universities and research centers to the Sultanate of Oman and is aimed at transforming the Sultanate into a regional destination for entrepreneurship and innovation by establishing a cutting-edge training center focused on artificial intelligence.

The vision of the innovation hub is to provide incubation and acceleration opportunities for start-ups and provide upskilling programs for employees from the public and private sector to equip them with 21st-century skills in areas such as artificial intelligence, critical thinking, intrapreneurship, and innovation. It is intended that some of the programs to be delivered by the center will grant academic credits that may be counted towards earning academic degrees.
