On the 4 October 2022 the Final Knowledge Sharing Summit of the 5th Cycle of Dubai We Learn marked a new beginning with a name change from “Dubai We Learn” to “Dubai for Best Practices” in recognition of Dubai’s maturity in leading the application of best practices. This was also the first in-person summit of the current cycle, enabling all participants to meet each other for the first time, bringing a buzz of excitement and energy to the event. The four teams of Digital Science, Joined-up Digital Services, Building Capability for Future Jobs, and Behavioural Sciences presented how they used the TRADE Best Practice Benchmarking Methodology to identify and recommend best practices for the Dubai Government to implement. The presentations were followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers with a local and international jury.
