Global Grad Show is a year-round programme for university graduates and professors who are working on solutions for a better world.

The programme, now in its sixth year and held in partnership with A.R.M. Holding and Dubai Culture, will be organised around key trends identified among the 1,600 applications received this year, and 100 projects will be selected to illustrate their nature, complexity and global relevance. The show will be a forward-looking gathering of solutions for each identified trend, created by the world’s most talented science, technology and design students and will be brought to life in an inaugural interactive digital exhibition, giving a voice to the next generation of innovators.

New to 2020 will be the MENA Grad Show, a world-first physical exhibition of the 50 most exciting projects by university students based in the Middle East and North Africa, taking place in d3 during Dubai Design Week in November.
