Spanish institutions have had the opportunity to showcase their work at the numerous forums of Expo 2020 Dubai, many of those forums focus on knowledge transfer and the development of public/private projects. This moment will surely give us great visibility and will promote the research done at the BISITE Research Group and the AIR Institute.

Today, Wednesday February 2, we have presented some of our most valuable projects in the Australian pavilion, as part of an excellent conference organized by the Australian delegation, Justin McGowan, Commissioner General of Expo 2020 Dubai for Australia, and Ian Halliday, Consul General of Australia in Dubai.

At the BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca and the AIR Institute we specialize in the development of intelligent models in areas such as Smart Cities, connected industry, biotechnology, neuroscience, Fintech, Blockchain or IoT. Some of these projects are being carried out thanks to the collaboration of institutions in the Middle East and of Spanish entities that have delegations in those countries.

The Expo 2020 Dubai, which had been delayed due to the pandemic, is taking place in a spectacular environment that will be transformed into a business & science park after the celebration of this event. The Spanish pavilion is sure to offer many opportunities to national companies and research centers interested in developing their work in this part of the world. For the moment we can only invite you to visit both the Expo and our pavilion, it’s worth seeing.
