The poor society – which is rich in creative energies capable of innovation in all areas of life – must never worry about its future; these elements are the basis of its economic growth and civilized progress and its transfer to the ranks of developed countries, And address them to vital areas that require a qualitative leap in all their activities.
Not every human invention is successful, but there are many criteria that govern its success:
• The extent to which it applies modern technology techniques to suit the requirements of the revolutionary era we are witnessing.
• The area of community participation; innovation seeks primarily to serve the community, and therefore must allow everyone to present their views, evaluate the project, and develop future visions of it.
The more innovation can be implemented in more than one region within a society or in other countries, the more local and international attention is gained, and the more opportunities to finance its projects in more than one region.
It is nice that many important and famous stories of innovation have begun with creative ideas and have been transformed into active projects on the ground, contributing to the elimination of many of the world’s health, social and educational problems or alleviating their acute effects.
Project “Patient Innovations” in Portugal
The 2016 Innovation Innovations Platform was selected as one of the three most innovative innovations for creative governments worldwide, based on a joint report by the Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Government Innovation and the Stanford International Research Institute.
The project aims at making the best use of social networks by creating a platform for collective ideas, involving people with rare diseases, their families, doctors and researchers to provide new innovations that reduce their daily suffering with the disease and improve their mental health, Which may lead to early detection of certain diseases.
The platform is available in English, Portuguese and German, and from its own controls, the deletion of any posts that include the promotion of certain medical companies. On the other hand, it has proved effective in eliminating the control of companies and innovation centers in marketing and spreading individual innovations on unfair terms, which means replication in many other countries.
“Digital School in a Box“
UNICEF is implementing a new innovative project in Uganda entitled Digital School in a Fund, targeting 60 local schools with 100 to 200 children each. The project’s idea is to connect schools in remote areas with more modern educational networks And the same idea can be used to link these communities to hospitals or police stations when necessary.
Each school receives a box that includes a solar-powered laptop connected to the Internet, a projector, a speaker, and a photo camera.
Companies rely on the latest technology
The Arab Science and Technology Foundation has also highlighted many unique innovation stories based on state-of-the-art technology and has already turned into emerging companies offering their services and products on the market, with more than 110 companies supporting them.
These stories came as part of a book entitled “Research and Innovation Towards a Knowledge Economy: The Business and Success of the Foundation in Support of R & D and the Launch of Technology Companies”, and the innovative models contained therein:
• Astro Clips:
The company started in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and its innovative idea is to use mobile phone applications to promote the importance of conservation of the environment and its resources, especially non-renewable ones, and to abandon the use of traditional paper or posters.
Astro Clips has already developed a new program that sends marketing offers to consumers directly via phones and social networks. The idea impressed many people and the company then moved to the United States.
• Biotechnology for Research and Development:
This company is already in Tunisia, specifically Sfax, since 2008, the first company in the country that specializes in the production of antibodies and biotechnologies, and finally devised a new scientific means to reveal micro-bacteria in food products, whether plant or animal, Conventional microbiological laboratories.
The company seeks – through its amazing innovation – to detect and analyze the pathogens and the presence of toxic substances in the body, which contributes to future prevention and reduce the incidence of various diseases.
• Nano Dex:
The Egyptian company has succeeded in adapting bio-nanotechnology to provide an innovative means of detecting hepatitis in less than one hour, using high-speed medical tests through the HCV Nano-Gold test.
Nano-Gold technology is commonly used in the treatment of this disease, as it succeeds in infecting the cells affected by the hepatitis virus, and then treated.
• The Arab Company for Biotechnology:
Or “Ahabab for Biotech Industries”. This company has succeeded in creating an organic insecticide resistant to nematodes, while at the same time helping to improve soil fertility.
The company was established in the United Arab Emirates and specializes in research on the development of biological products and antiviral drugs, conducting quality tests for others, granting patents in biotechnologies, and diagnosing microbes and microbes.
• I call Plus Company:
The Bahraini company has adopted its innovative project on satellite technology, which can monitor the movement of objects and control automatically, and linked them to the transport systems in the field of rental vehicles and management automatically.
The project enables the customer to access the desired vehicle location via the navigator, which is loaded on the cell phone after receiving a certain number. The company can control the leased cars, such as: closing the doors, operating or stopping the vehicle and other services Value-added, through the same mechanism.
IKOL Plus has established a strong and direct partnership with the country’s telecommunications network administrators through the IVR system and a sophisticated SMS system.
The company started in the United Arab Emirates with Tunisian capital and succeeded in developing artificial intelligence tools already used for industry and commerce to simplify the understanding of natural languages and develop more accurate methods to identify different meanings of speech and metaphors.
The company, which moved to Tunisia for a short time and finally settled in Canada, was able to compete in 14 live languages and exceeded its market value of $ 69 million, after starting at only $ 100,000, which indicates its superiority and leadership in this area
