TORONTO: Emirati inventor Ahmed Abdullah Majan has won three gold medals and two silver medals in the International Invention Innovation Competition in Canada (iCAN 2016).

Organisers Toronto International Society of Innovation & Advanced Skills (TISIAS) also awarded the Emirati inventor cup for the best inventor from the Middle East and the shield of excellence for the best invention.

Majan harvested the largest number of medals by an individual inventor participating in the challenge. Majan has 34 inventions which won international recognition.

Majan, who is member of the International Federation of Inventors' Associations (IFIA), has dedicated his landmark victory to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and to the government and people of the UAE for the care, encouragement and support lent to innovation, creativity and scientific progress.

Organisers said Majan was given three gold medals for his creative creations: the smart protective helmet, which also won the best invention from the Middle East, the smart saddle and the solar-powered animal tracking device, which harvested the shield of excellence for the best invention. He scooped two silver medals for his innovative works: solar-powered bicycle tracking device and the smart stick for the elderly people.

iCAN 2016 provides all-around programmes including display and exhibition of inventions, and educational seminars followed by the awarding ceremony of recognisable invention entry applications. The event serves as a great opportunity for all participants to be recognised for creativity through their inventions and introduces their innovative products to the Canadian market.

iCAN 2016 is arguably the first international event of inventions and innovative projects ever held in Canada and a celebration for all achievements made by talented inventors of today's generation from multiple countries. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
