UAE will set up the country’s first Industry 4.0 Enablement Centre aimed at promoting, enabling, and supporting the digital transformation and the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies across the country’s manufacturing sector.

UAE’s Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) and EDGE, which signed a memorandum of understanding, will explore how the Enablement Centre can leverage what has been achieved by the EDGE Learning & Innovation Factory (LIF), a state-of-the-art learning, innovation, and demonstration centre for Industry 4.0, operational excellence, and advanced technology.

Its offerings include learning, innovation, and demonstration to the wider industrial ecosystem.

The Industry 4.0 Enablement Centre will comprise various activities, including raising awareness around Industry 4.0 technologies and practices, upskilling manufacturers’ capabilities with specialized training curricula, demonstrating 4IR technology benefits, supporting the development of Industry 4.0 strategies, and creating a testbed and an open-access environment to pilot and co-develop innovative technologies.

The agreement was signed in the presence of Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology; Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology and  Faisal Al Bannai, Chairman of the Board of Directors, EDGE.

Dr. Sultan Al Jaber commented, “Based on the vision of our leadership, the Ministry’s strategy is committed to supporting local manufacturers to adopt advanced technologies and 4IR solutions. Advanced technologies help to enhance efficiency, productivity, safety, and quality while reducing costs, optimising supply chains, and creating jobs.”

“Our MoU with EDGE aims to boost our industrial competitiveness. The establishment of the country’s first Industry 4.0 Enablement Centre is a significant milestone in the sector’s transformation journey. The centre will help to empower industry by supporting companies to adopt advanced technology and upskilling the workforce, thereby boosting productivity and efficiency,” he added.
