Leveraging on the ever growing R&D ecosystem in the State of Qatar, the TASMU Innovation Lab will act as an orchestrator amongst the government, researchers and the technology industry. The TASMU Innovation lab will bring current challenges identified by the government to the innovation ecosystem to solve those challenges alongside our technology partners leveraging on their industry expertise and solutions.

The Innovation lab aims to create a learning experience designed to give participants access to knowledge, insights and advanced tools required to further their exploration through accessing numerous sources of data to improve their decision-making. In addition to having access to data, the Innovation Lab will host collaborative events to members who will gain preferential access to initiatives. As a space the Innovation lab houses three important area; Demos will displayed to emphasize the latest tech in a particular industry or a sector to encourage researchers, government entities to think big.
