We are proud to contribute through MBRSC’s events to achieve our national objectives of developing national capacities to lead the future of vital sectors in the UAE, such as space. We also aim to encourage the new generation to be more interested in science and technology and develop their innovative and scientific research skills.”

The detailed programme agenda includes a number of seminars and workshops on space that will be held by MBRSC’s specialists.

MBRSC Science Event is an extension of our legacy in organizing science events which started with the Annual EMM Science Workshop over 4 years ago. Our proven track record in hosting successful scientific events that enrich the minds of youth and inspire them to take an interest in space science enabled us today to step up our efforts with MBRSC Science Event to keep pace with our global space programmes and initiatives that MBRSC currently works on.”
