Dr. Hala bint Saeed Al-Amoudi, Dean of the University Studies for Girls, attended the seminar titled, "Role of Universities, Research Centers and Social Studies in the Fulfillment of KSA Vision 2030" on Wednesday, 8th  Rabi'I 1438H. The seminar was launched by the President of Umm Al-Qura University (UQU), Dr. Bakri bin Maatooq Assas, and organized by the Deanship of Postgraduate Studies. The event was held at King Abdulaziz Historical Hall, Abediyah Campus, while it was broadcasted via closed-circuit television for the female students at Al-Jawhara Hall, Al-Zahir Campus.

Dr. Azhar Hassan Al-Hindi, Vice Dean of Postgraduate Studies for Development, warmly received Dr. Al-Amoudi in the presence of female staff members.

The event started with a Qur'anic recitation followed by the speech by the President of Umm Al-Qura University (UQU), Dr. Bakri bin Maatooq Assas, in which he stressed that the basic factor in replacing oil with alternative fuels was the human mind. This resulted in the applicable scientific researches that generated many patents on products. He noted that UQU took large steps in such domain through the support it obtained from the Government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, May Allah Bless It! This was evident in the foundation of Wadi Makkah Technology Company in order to turn patents into products through sponsorship of startup companies. Dr. Assas clarified that such programs, seminars and workshops which were organized by the Deanship of Postgraduate Studies sought to achieve KSA Vision 2030 through modulation of such programs according to labor market requirements. 

The scientific seminar was then launched, and managed by Prof. Saleh bin Abdullah al-Fureih, Dean of Postgraduate Studies. Moreover, it was participated in by Dr. Saleh bin Abdulaziz Al-Nassar, GM of the National Center for Social Studies, and Dr. Abdullah Hussein Al-Khalifa, General Supervisor of Social Research and Consultation at the Center.
