Expo 2020 Dubai on Monday announced the first public roll-out of its $100 million (AED367 million) “Expo Live” programme to help fund, accelerate and promote creative projects.
The programme calls for individual entrepreneurs, small and medium enterprises, non-for-profit organisations, or government-related entities to submit their solutions, which should be at a demonstration and implementation stage, to Expo Live.
While a low-key pilot introduction of this important pillar in long-term Expo 2020 Dubai strategy was made last year, this is the first public outreach launched by the World Expo. It will be the first of twice yearly cycles up to June 2018 to find suitable projects. More info
