Dubai Future Foundation - Welcome To The Future

Launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Museum will become a unique incubator for futuristic innovations and designs. The Museum of the Future will be an incubator for ideas, a driver for innovation, and a destination for inventors and entrepreneurs from around the world.

 

The easy stereotype is that collaborative governance happens best when there is a strong tradition of democratic discussion, and what Alexis de Toqueville called “associational” instincts. But the example of the Dubai Future Foundation suggests otherwise. It was set up with strong political backing, to play “a pivotal role in shaping the future of Dubai”. It involves key strategic sectors, in cooperation with government and private sector entities.
