How we Operate

Speed

Slow to understand the potential of unscaled tech

Slow to develop empathy for those organizations, seeking to create the future and not just profits.

Slow because erring on the side of risk avoidance, with heavy focus research and not enough testing.

Scale

Scales nationwide instantly, without first experimenting and iterating on new regulations.

Does not scale, and remains within one Emirate, and less nationwide standardization.

CO-CREATION

Today, regulation is “submitted” by government entities, in silos, with high cost.

Regulation creation is a ʻblack boxʼ, with impact done post-implementation.

Mandate overlaps between government entities prevents early testing.

NEW MARKETS

Whilst other ʻnation-innovationʼ strategies have heavier focus on ʻR&Dʼ - the purpose of the RegLab, is to help UAE accelerate the ʻmarketʼ for new technologies - driving an economic benefit faster.

GOVERNMENT-AS-A-PLATFORM

The purpose of the RegLab is turn government machinery

(creation of the regulations, experiment corridors infrastructure, models, funding)

Into a platform such that it allows, facilitates and rewards others to build on top of government to make government smaller, agile and wealth creator

CITIZENS QUALITY OF LIFE

The purpose of the RegLab is to close the gap between technology invention and technology adoption at scale - so citizens lives can be happier, healthier and wealthier
