The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award promotes the production, dissemination, and localisation of knowledge across the region, as directed by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Award’s Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation.
The Award seeks to set the foundation for a knowledge economy at the local, regional, and international levels, in addition to embedding knowledge in local culture and recognising intellectual and creative achievements by honouring their owners.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award reflects Dubai’s commitment to honouring Arab and international knowledge achievements that benefit people and positively affect the development and prosperity of all societies.
Over the past few years, the Award has succeeded in highlighting the essential nature of knowledge and creativity in the lives of individuals, as well as the importance of involving members of society in the process of producing and disseminating knowledge.
The Award inspires many to contribute to the knowledge industry around the world. Organisers will continue to look for creators and achievers wherever they may be, to honour them and recognise achievements that have changed the lives of millions of people, and turned knowledge into a universal language that brings people together.
