The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has extended the deadline for making submissions to the inaugural edition of its Scientific Research Award up to October 31, 2012 instead of mid of September.
The Award, which has been recently launched under the theme (Researches for a Promising Future), aims to embed the pillars and structures of scientific research culture and disseminate it amongst RTA employees, and encourage them to carry out researches in various business fields. It also aims to improve RTA’s professional environment, and uplift the caliber of its products & services for the benefit of Dubai Emirate in particular and the UAE in general.
“Extending submissions deadline up to the end of October is intended to offer extra opportunity to interested individuals and grant them ample time to complete their researches deliberately and supporting it with sober knowledge & thoughtful informatics,” said Ahmed Hashim Bahrozyan, CEO of RTA Licensing Agency and Chairperson of the Award. This annual Award, which is sponsored by H.E. the Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA, is the first of its kind at the level of Dubai Government departments & agencies.
The Award was launched in response to the pressing needs for enriching the efforts in conducting empirical researches; which are currently considered quite limited in the UAE. The RTA has therefore assumed the task of supporting these efforts through this initiative, he explained.
“The Award aims to hit a host of key objectives such as identifying employees who have research skills and motivating them to hone and harness their abilities in the interest of RTA business, particularly as the Award spans human resources, and management fields in addition to specialist studies in roads, transport, infrastructure and engineering & environmental aspects among others,” continued Bahrozyan.
“Conditions set for participation in the Award include sobriety & genuineness of the research, and the provision of supporting information & statistics, if possible. The Judging Panel consists of staffs of universities & academic institutions, professionals, and specialists in various categories & disciplines of the Award,” said Bahrozyan in a concluding remark.
