Reem Al Falasi, a graduate of MSc in Informatics, is selected along with three other young Emiratis to represent the UAE at the 85th General Assembly of the International Electrotechnical Organisation (IEC) which is going to be held in Dubai in October 2021.

The four youth ambassadors who specialise in engineering and technology were nominated for the IEC’s Youth Professionals Programme (IECYPP) by their work organisations and they were selected from 17 candidates working in the security, oil and gas, nuclear energy, industry, telecommunications, services and renewable energy sectors.

 

They will participate in discussions with the leaders of the organisation, technical committees and conformity systems to share their ideas through interactive workshops. They will be attending the meeting of the General Assembly and technical committees as observers and conducting a number of field tours to industrial sites in the country.

 

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a global, not-for-profit membership organisation, whose work underpins quality infrastructure and international trade in electrical and electronic goods. The IEC brings together more than 170 countries and provides a global, neutral and independent standardisation platform to 20,000 experts globally.
