Travel and Accommodation

The IEA IRC 2021 will be held at Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences, Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai, UAE. Dubai is one of seven member emirates of the UAE, a small country in the Middle East, spanning 83,600 sq km. Each emirate has its own Sheikh, with the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi being the president of UAE. Dubai is a vibrating city, with not only the world’s tallest building, glamorous hotels, extravagantly themed malls, man-made islands, and a dazzling array of dining options, Dubai has a rich history that will give any visitor a feel of Arabic culture. Old traditional Arabian houses line the creek, along with an array of dhows (traditional wooden boats), and a mish mash of old style souqs (markets) filled with local people looking for a bargain.
