Under directives from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award has, since its inception, sought to bring a message of appreciation to those who have dedicated time and effort to the production and dissemination of knowledge, reflecting the UAE Government’s commitment to supporting knowledge and creativity.
The Award identifies the production and dissemination of knowledge as the foundation that societies are built upon, and the optimal path towards sustainable development. It provides a strong incentive for people to exert more efforts and get involved in knowledge-centric programmes and initiatives. This, in turn, allows them to serve and develop their communities.
We express our gratitude to our wise leaders for their unwavering support for any initiative that stands to produce, disseminate, and localise knowledge in our region. This is the cornerstone of our excellence, achievements, and status among nations.
