“The learning environment of a research-
intensive university is very rich and helps
prepare young people for a broad range
of futures. It is much more of an education
than just training and I think we
ll remain
attractive to very high quality students.�?
“Research is absolutely critical to the
development of any society. There is
enormous potential in the UAE and much
excellent research is being undertaken but
we are not yet punching above our weight.
We need to look very closely at every stage
of education to ensure the pathway to top-
class global scholars is supportive from the
very beginning. This requires a productive
environment for building research capability
and some key investments. If we are brave
we can achieve this.�?
