Inspiring adventures in innovation
The facility embodies a spirit of innovation and commitment to accelerating human potential that are firmly rooted in the Aramco culture. Company programs across Saudi Arabia support economic and community projects that empower people to make the next leap forward. In doing so, Aramco will be helping individuals deliver solutions that prepare their communities for the future, giving them the tools to succeed in an ever-changing world. Aramco's aim is to cultivating this culture of innovation through the application of both technology and imagination - and this is the philosophy at the heart of LAB7.
Its overarching vision is to encourage growth of the innovation ecosystem, creating and cultivating an atmosphere that empowers a new generation of entrepreneurs. In doing so, it aims to support development inside Saudi Arabia by enhancing the domestic landscape, creating quality job opportunities and promoting growth of a knowledge-based economy driven by innovation and technology. This is why other initiatives that complement LAB7 are also being planned, an online portal for freelancers and an annual industrial innovation summit on an international level.
Since Aramco first started producing oil more than eight decades ago, it has established itself as a leading innovator in the energy sector. It is a common thread that runs throughout its operations, from its specialized research centers to its application of cutting-edge Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies and its digital transformation project. LAB7 is another step on this exciting journey – illustrating how Aramco is not only leading by example, but also spurring on others through adventures in innovation that will ultimately usher in a new age of prosperity.
