EBTIC is continuously developing new partnerships and expanding its network of collaborators both in the UAE and internationally. Through these partnerships EBTIC and its partners and collaborators can deliver more value and scientific excellence.

EBTIC is fundamentally built on a strong and diverse industry, academia and government partnership between Etisalat, BT, Khalifa University and ICT Fund, which gives its strategic research and innovation programme the depth and breadth that make it unique.


Etisalat Group is one of the world’s leading telecom groups in emerging markets. With consolidated net revenue at AED 51.7 billion and consolidated net profit of AED 9.0 billion for 2020, its high credit ratings reflect the company’s strong balance sheet and proven long-term performance.
