Launched in 2011, Takamul is a UAE innovation programme to support inventors and promote innovation across the country. Takamul focuses on making UAE one of the most innovative countries in the world by promoting the innovation cycle, from the generation of ideas to the practical implementation of these ideas into commercial activities that support the country economically and socially. The programme will support inventors from different categories and level, including individuals and corporates.

Since its first launch, Takamul achieves an annual increasing number of registered patents, and spreads awareness on key aspects of innovation, particularly the legal aspects that protect the inventors’ Intellectual Property. This guide is developed to clarify the role of corporates in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi regarding the Intellectual Property laws. 

Takamul Objectives

In mature, knowledge-based economies, innovation in the science and technology industries has contributed significantly to their economic growth. Takamul is aligned with Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030 to drive human capital in science and technology by helping inventors and innovators of every age, turn their dreams into reality. 


Since the establishment of innovation ecosystem is an important part of a knowledge-based economy, Takamul aims to provide a complete service across the innovation ecosystem that is continually expanded to offer new components and areas of expertise, thus creating further value for inventors and innovators in the UAE.


About Takamul Name and Logo

Takamul (Arabic meaning of “Integration”) describes the “integral” mathematical operation. In mathematics, an integral represents the sum of results for an equation between two points.

Similar to its mathematical namesake, Takamul Program’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).
