This book provides valuable insights into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) through a comprehensive examination of Saudi Vision 2030, an ambitious economic plan by the KSA to reinvent and diversify its economy from a heavy dependence on hydrocarbon to knowledge-based resources.

Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Saudi Arabia: Vision 2030 discusses how this initiative will assist the government in achieving its envisioned goals by creating a culture of research, innovation and entrepreneurship. It studies the current state of play as well as new policies and reforms in Saudi Arabia which encompass education systems, ICT infrastructure, and a vibrant innovation landscape that includes academia, the public and private sector, and civil society. The authors present a number of real-life case studies as a model of inspiration for cross-sector development. The book provides a source of inspiration for other nations in studying the KSA’s determined and ambitious plans as a country in a transitioning journey, from a natural resources-based economy towards a knowledge-based country with considerable diversification in all sectors.

This book is a useful reference for students, researchers, policy and decision makers in understanding Saudi innovation and the economic diversification ecosystem.
