Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), HE Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, has received the Innovation Organization Maturity certificate.

The certificate has been awarded to the RTA by the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI), Boston, USA, as an appreciative gesture towards RTA’s role in driving innovation.

Consequently, RTA has become the first Middle Eastern entity and the first transport entity in the world to obtain the certificate.

Accepting the recognition, HE Al Tayer said: "RTA is committed to making innovation an institutional practice in planning a sustainable future for the upcoming generations. Thus, it formed a standing committee for innovation. The committee is responsible for developing plans, programmes and initiatives to realise the vision of our leaders and eventually cement Dubai's position as the top innovative city in the world."

HE Al Tayer outlined RTA's innovation drive through the years, adding that in 2014, the organisation established a Research, Development and Innovation Section and subsequently transformed it into the Knowledge and Innovation Department.

"RTA has developed an innovation strategy together with a process for monitoring and analysing local and global future trends. It has also adopted innovative solutions to cope with transport challenges. In line with our efforts to make innovation a predominant feature of RTA projects, and with the support of our leaders, we managed to integrate innovation in the services we provide," he concluded.
