innovating for a shared future

The UK Pavilion will be the centrepiece of the our presence, alongside a six-month events programme at the UK Pavilion and beyond showcasing the ingenuity and invention that the UK is well known for.

Expo 2020 Dubai provides an opportunity to connect with people directly on the UK Pavilion in Dubai, and virtually throughout the world. Just like the first World Expo that took place in London in 1851, the next World Expo in Dubai will demonstrate human and social aspirations, and highlight scientific, technological, economic and social progress. 

The UK has always thrived on the exchange of ideas and are open to different approaches and new collaborations. UK inventions like the steam train and the telephone have given the world the ability to travel, trade and communicate internationally, connecting minds and people for hundreds of years. The World Wide Web, invented by UK computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee, has changed the way the world works and plays. The UK is leading innovation across a range of industries including technology, healthcare, life sciences, agriculture and space exploration.

The UK is pioneering the way by becoming the first major economy to pass new laws to reduce emissions to net zero by 2050. The UK is providing expertise on innovative and sustainable solutions to help other countries to end its contribution to global warming.

We want to see new ways to work together and develop further, in overcoming global challenges.
