The purpose of this paper is to enhance our understanding about the current state of R&D in the UAE and its challenges through an exploratory case study of a technological innovation. The innovation process of the Emirati entrepreneur is similar to processes in other parts of the world, but there is no access to government research centers or public research available. The findings suggest that support is needed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of technological innovation processes in the UAE.
