The Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) is intended to be the leading institution in Qatar dedicated to funding research in the Qatari interest. It will address priority economic and social needs and pursue opportunities to attract internationally recognized researchers to study topics of regional and global importance. QNRF is a project of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating the full potential of the Qatari people through a network of progressive research and educational centers. To lay the groundwork for QNRF, the foundation asked the RAND-Qatar Policy Institute (RQPI) in 2004 to recommend a design and draft business and implementation plans; this report documents the results. The RQPI team presented a design that took the best practices of internationally recognized research and academic institutions and tailored them to both the foundation’s vision for QNRF and Qatar’s unique needs, challenges, and opportunities. The design included a structure for QNRF and laid out the tasks necessary to build it, to be undertaken during implementation three phases: start-up, launch of operations and programs, and deepening and broadening of the research agenda. The design also proposed a set of operating principles for meeting strategic goals and performing in accordance with internationally recognized standards.
