Award for Security Research

 

Minister Message


The announcement of the Security Research Award comes in line with the Ministry of Interior’s strategy that supports and encourages scientific research and studies in a bid to upgrade researchers’ and students’ performance and competence.

We aim, through this Award, to further reinforce scientific research and policing and security studies in order to keep abreast of development and modernization, relying on cutting edge technologies and modern systems in all security areas. Such development and modernization could be attained only with the availability of well-trained human resources, capable of using new technologies and systems.

This requires from us to thoroughly study the actual phenomena in a scientific manner, built on investigation, analysis and deduction so as to attain appropriate solutions.

This research is open to everybody. The Award is expected to stimulate desire for competition and to serve as a catalyst for policing and security researchers and students.

We aim, through this Award, to lay the foundations for an institutional system that supports scientific research and encourages security studies so as to help the ministry carry on with its development and modernization schemes.

Shaikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa
