UAEU Education & Research 2011
“UAEU has taken decisive action over the last
two years to increase its research output to
provide research solutions of genuine value
to the Nation, whilst continuing to educate
and train our students to be the nation’s future
leaders and problem-solvers. It will be an
honor to welcome such prestigious guests to
participate in our UAEU Education & Research
2011 event, through which we will have
reached a greater audience to make clear our
goals, achievements and potential with regard
to research. As a result of the evening we will
be aiming as an institution to establish further
profitable research partnerships between
UAEU and the UAE government, and private
sector companies both in the UAE and further
afield�?.
With these words the Vice Chancellor of the UAEU, Dr.
Abdullah Saad Al-Khanbashi, set the stage for UAEU
Education & Research 2011 – Investing in Knowledge
for the Nation’s Future, which was held under the
Patronage of His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed
Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and
Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAEArmed Forces.
With the Leadership of the United Arab Emirates setting
out its vision for the Nation to structure growth over the
coming years; encapsulated in a number of documents
including the UAE 2021 Vision which unites the Nation
in responsibility, destiny, knowledge and prosperity,
and the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030; the UAEU responded
by specifically aligning its research strategy with the
economic and social development of the Nation.
The University’s research profile and activity has been developed to
recognized international standards. This has been done through four
concurrent processes. First, the research capability and level of activity within
the existing university have been enhanced through targeted hires. Second,
research institutes are being established in selected fields of high value to the
nation. Third, a university-wide graduate research-training program has been
established. Fourth, the University has upgraded its capability to access the
world’s library resources digitally, to transmit and share scholarly information
with research collaborators worldwide and to use information technology in
support of education throughout the Nation.
