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, was organised around key global trends identified among the 1,600 applications received this year, and 100 projects were selected to illustrate their nature, complexity and global relevance. The show was a forward-looking gathering of solutions for each identified trend, created by the world’s most talented science, technology and design students and was brought to life in an inaugural interactive digital exhibition, giving a voice to the next generation of innovators.

New to 2020 was 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 and took place in d3 during Dubai Design Week.
