The National Center for Health Research (NCHR) at the Ministry of Health and Prevention strives to promote and develop national capabilities in health and medical research by establishing a catalyzed research ecosystem and building skills and competencies in the area of health and medical research.
In addition, the NCHR is seeking to strengthen the cooperation between academic institutions, healthcare service providers, commercial companies, and scientific institutions to achieve the strategic direction of the UAE in boosting national indicators in the field of research and innovation.
This proposal outlines the program for organizing the "First Health and Medical Research Conference in the UAE" in the areas of priority research identified by the NCHR in its National Health Research Strategy 2021.
The primary purpose of the conference is to encourage researchers across the UAE to participate, present, and disseminate their research work in the area of health and medical research. Ultimately, this activity will enhance the growth of national capabilities in health research and improve the national performance KPIs.
- Offering researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their health and medical research and promote networking among researchers in the UAE.
- Encouraging cooperation between researchers and institutions to conduct research in the fields of specialized medical and health research.
