Chairperson's Message - Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser
Research is integral to all our lives. We may not all consider ourselves researchers yet when we select a business to provide us with a service, we gather and disseminate information in order to do so. When we select a university, school or career path we study the options carefully and closely. Research is the key to effective decision-making.
The research that Qatar National Research Fund has been established to propagate will enable Qatar to make effective decisions. It is research on a grander scale than that which we conduct in our daily lives but it will impact just as much. It will result in improved health services and medical care. It will raise the bar on our educational standards and improve the knowledge of our teachers. Research will enable us to efficiently utilize the natural resources that God has blessed this country with, yet also equip us to care for the environment entrusted to us. Discoveries in technology and engineering will drive our businesses. Research in arts and humanities will broaden our horizons and our cultural understanding.
Just as researching our children’s educational opportunities puts them on a path to success, Qatar National Research Fund will provide the information to enable Qatar to make effective decisions and maintain its path toward a sustainable economy and a dynamic society.
