Saudi Vision 2030 envisages a thriving education, research and renewable energy sectors

Vision 2030 was approved by the Saudi cabinet on 25-April-2016, which captures the aspirations of the government for the coming 15 years.

The vision carefully addresses three major themes (society, economy, nation), and assigns goals to each sub-theme, then concludes with commitments for each theme.

Among the commitments that are pertinent to education, research, and renewable energy:

  • Have at least five Saudi universities among the top 200 universities in international rankings.
  • Train through distance learning more than 500,000 government employees.
  • Generate 9.5 gigawatts of renewable energy, with the localization of significant portion of the renewable value chain (including research).
  • Build a centralized student database tracking students from early childhood through to K-12 and beyond into tertiary education (higher and vocational).
