The Government Accelerators aims to rethink how Government works by introducing a unique model built on accelerated results, increased collaboration and innovation. The Government Accelerators emphasizes the integration between federal and local Government entities, the private sector, academic institutions, and NGOs with the purpose of driving innovation and ultimately achieving the UAE’s Government ambitious plans.
In October 2016, the UAE Cabinet launched Government Accelerators as a new mechanism to boost the achievement of the National Agenda to achieve Vision 2021. Essentially, Government Accelertors is a platform for cross-sectoral government teams to address challenges and achieve ambitious goals.
Each project team aims to make progress on the national key performance indicators, policies and services that are required to drive implementation of solutions.
Government Accelerators comprises representatives from various entities which aim to stimulate innovation and collaboration and deliver practical results in 100 days or less. It also works on giving recommendations for immediate execution within (7, 15, 30, 60, 90) days, followed by a rapid collective decision.
