Dr. Abdalla Alnajjar Alhammadi, combining his passion for science, with a strong sense of entrepreneurship, has done a lot of groundbreaking work in the Arab world. Under his leadership and vision, the Arab Science and Technology Foundation has greatly accelerated the course of scientific and technological progress in the region and beyond. Widely considered one of the most influential Arabs in the world, he has shown the way for academics, policymakers and business leaders to make a lasting impact on society. “Don’t let any wealth you already have stop you from trying to do good in the world; use it to position yourself to do more,” he says to his fellow Emiratis. “Use the opportunities you have to show the world how good we are, to show that we are an integral part of the global village!”
