"As part of Qatar Foundations educational renaissance project, HBKU is at the heart of Qatars strategy to invest in human capital and contribute to the diversification of the economy. The countrys economic and social development demanded the critical thinking and skills that a high-quality research education could provide. These knowledge investments continue to support Qatar in achieving economic, social and sustainable development. Our goal moving forward is to lead all possible efforts in creating high-impact research outcomes and addressing areas of vital national importance, including artificial intelligence, climate change, and quantum data analysis. We remain deeply connected to our society by initiating meaningful conversations; we have launched the HBKU Dialogues to mobilize and bridge our research efforts and our community outreach initiatives," he said.

It is noteworthy that HBKU's efforts, which were based on the values of innovation and transformation, through educational and study programs, research outputs and other initiatives, have proven that the impact of higher education institutions extends to all sustainable development goals. The university is highly regarded as a unique country center for innovative research that enriches knowledge, builds capabilities and transforms society. Over the past decade, the university has endeavored to develop integrated, world-class academic programs and national research capabilities that can drive Qatar's knowledge-based economy forward and formulate new solutions to sustainability and other challenges.
