Abu Dhabi - The Ministry of Interior (MoI) has launched its innovation lab, in line with the leadership’s announcement of 2015 as the ‘Year of Innovation’ in the UAE.

The innovation lab aims to develop innovative solutions to the different challenges faced by the UAE society that are related to the ministry’s tasks. The lab also allows community members to submit their suggestions and ideas via social networking sites to be discussed in search for innovative, practical and pragmatic solutions.

Major-General Dr Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, Secretary-General of the Office of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, explained, “The innovation lab concept is a response to the MoI’s directives on the need to adopt purposeful proposals submitted by community members and discuss the possibility of successfully implementing them. (This is) ... to enhance the services provided by the police to the public and upgrade these services in the best possible way.” He also noted that members of the public will be briefed on the lab’s objectives, and they will be invited to submit their proposals through the ministry’s social networking sites. These proposals will be used to identify the main challenges faced by the public and launch the process for generating the appropriate innovative ideas to overcome them.

“The ideas would be then analysed and examined during specialised and interactive meetings and workshops that will be organised in the next few months,” said Major-General Al Nuaimi.

Colonel Mohammed Hamid bin Dalmouj Al Dhaheri, Strategy and Performance Development Director-General at the MoI, indicated that the initial phase for activating the innovation lab will commence soon with the launch of the hashtag #TheInnovation-Lab-of-the-Ministry-of-Interior through the ministry’s pages on social media websites.
