MBRF seeks submissions for top award

DUBAI, July 25, 2017

Dubai's Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) has officially opened the door to submissions for the annual Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award (MBRKA).
     
The award, under the patronage of Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, MBRF chairman, seeks to recognise and honour individuals and organisations who have made significant contributions to the field of knowledge, and to encourage them to innovate and play an influential role in building the knowledge economy.

Jamal bin Huwaireb, CEO of MBRF and secretary-general of the award, said: "The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award has underlined the necessity to produce, disseminate, and localise knowledge in the region. It is a prestigious award that plays a critical role in building a knowledge economy at the local, regional, and international levels. The award embeds knowledge into the cultural fabric of our societies and promotes intellectual and creative achievements."

"Over the course of the past few years, the Award has successfully driven individuals across all segments of society to get involved in the knowledge industry," Bin Huwaireb said. "We look forward to carry on with our mission again this year, bringing a new set of innovations and innovators before our panel of regional and international knowledge experts and academics."

With the deadline set for August 31, 2017, written submissions (in Arabic or English) will be received on the award's website (http://www.knowledgeaward.com), where candidates that meet the necessary criteria can register for consideration, even if they have won the award in previous years.

Candidates can be individuals (in the UAE and abroad); government departments; or local, regional, and international companies and organisations. The award, however, cannot be granted posthumously.

Any individual or organisation is welcome to apply, provided they have made significant and measurable contributions to the knowledge industry, within one of the following categories: knowledge, development and innovation; developing academic and research institutions; information and communication technologies (ICT); printing, publishing and documentation (both paper-based and electronic); as well as other fields specified by the award's board of trustees.

Furthermore, nomination conditions and criteria for the award indicate that applications must be accompanied by reference letters from referees with expertise in the field of nomination; and that the nomination request must be accompanied by supporting documents about the nominee's contribution to knowledge. Nominations must also adhere to the standards and ethics of scientific research, integrity and intellectual property. - TradeArabia News Service
