According to the CNT's press agency, the park's senior executive, Naziha Antar, said the site has 22 universities and education institutes, 47,000 active students, and an annual investment of AED 1.5 billion (about USD 408.3 million at the current rate) in education. The park receives collaboration and support from the government, industry, and academia.
Also in the Sharjah region, the delegation had contact with 3D printers used in the manufacturing of building materials and tested an experimental line of flying vehicles developed by uSky Transport, a Belarus-based company. According to the Eastern European company, such a network, implemented across the city, could serve 10,000 passengers per hour, with air vehicles traveling up to 150 kilometers per hour.
