Program Overview
Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030 state the desire to diversify its industries by fostering a knowledge-based economy. The generation of new and better ideas is at the center of this vision.

The Takamul program is a national innovation support program developed and operated by the Abu Dhabi Technology Development Committee (TDC).

The program is created to facilitate the integration of each stage of the innovation cycle, from the generation of ideas to the practical and commercial application of these ideas into products, solutions and services.

To date the program supported innovations in the Health & Medical, ICT, Clean-tech, Semiconductor, Oil & Gas Services, Energy, Advance Materials infrastructure and Lifestyle industries.
About the Takamul name and logo
Takamul (meaning “Integration”) describes the “integral” mathematical operation that is a cornerstone of calculus. In mathematics, an integral represents the sum of results for an equation between two points.

Similar to its mathematical namesake, Takamul’s ultimate mission is to facilitate the integration of each stage of the innovation cycle between the starting point (generating ideas) and the end state (the practical application of these ideas through innovative products, solutions and services).

This is illustrated in the program’s logo – an integral sign that begins with ideas (colored in grey) and transitions into application (colored in red).
The Takamul Program supports Emirati national individuals, and UAE based academic institutions and companies by:
