The launch of ‘Mostaqbal Portal’ is an innovative initiative of Dubai Museum of the Future Foundation to cover the latest findings of the technology and science sector on a daily basis by publishing studies, research findings, visual material and infographics in Arabic in simplified and easy-to-understand language.
The launch of the new portal comes within the framework of implementing the vision to support scientific content presented in Arabic, especially in areas that have long faced a shortage of content for Arab readers and researchers.
The announcement of the launch was made at a press conference on Monday, March 28, in Dubai. The event also witnessed the signing of the agreements between Dubai Museum of the Future Foundation and the Ministry of Education, Dubai Smart Government, Al Bayan and Sky News Arabia to publish ‘Mostaqbal Portal’ content through their communication and media channels for readers and government employees in the UAE and abroad.
The ‘Mostaqbal Portal’ will publish studies, research findings, articles, visual materials and infographics in areas related to science and technology, including: space science, health, science, artificial intelligence, smart networks, and virtual reality and news related to Future Museum, public and scientific studies, and other specialised areas.
