EXPO2020 takes place in Dubai between 1 October 2021 and 31 March 2022 with a focus on "Connecting Minds and Creating the Future" through sustainability, mobility and opportunity.

As part of the EXPO2020, the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Center of UAE (FCSC) will host a 3-day event in January 2022 organized jointly with the United Nations Committee of Experts on Big Data and Data Science for Official Statistics (UN-CEBD). The event is about data solutions that will support the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and help in overcoming emergency situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, for example, by using mobile phone data. It will showcase collaboration opportunities on the UN Global Platform and the Regional Hubs for Big Data, especially the Regional Hub in Dubai. From October to December 2021, UN-CEBD will organize a series of webinars in close collaboration with FCSC/UAE, paving the road to the event.

The first of these webinars will be held on 19 October and will focus on the UN Global Platform and show several projects currently running on the platform.

Further webinars will be held on 9 November, 23 November and 14 December. More information coming soon.
