QNRF to hold annual forum on May 18
Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, will hold its 3rd Annual Forum on Wednesday, May 18th 9:00 am at the Grand Hyatt hotel, West Bay Lagoon, Doha.
As a key component of Qatar Foundation's strategy to create a knowledge-based society, QNRF is dedicated to creating a research culture that will satisfy the goals and ambitions of Qatar Vision 2030. By educating and encouraging the spirit of lateral thinking through it's funding programs, QNRF's activities will contribute to the development of human capital, ultimately leading to scientific breakthroughs and sustainable economic diversification on a national scale.
The Forum's agenda is designed to inform, educate and update not only practitioners of QNRF funded research, but also those institutional research office team members who provide much needed support to the research teams by using QNRF's cutting-edge online grant management and submission systems to communicate with QNRF. As a platform for ideas and views to be put forward, previous Forums have proven to be a valuable part of the feedback mechanism encouraged by QNRF as it continues its in-house development of what is now acknowledged to be a state-of-the-art system and the structure of this year's Forum should stimulate further interaction.
Whilst there will be topical presentations on subjects vital to the integrity and sustainability of research, as well as updates on the systems, policies and procedures developed by QNRF, the highlight of the Forum will be an announcement by Dr Abdul Sattar Al-Taie, Executive Director, QNRF, on the outcome of the 4th cycle of QNRF's flagship funding program, the National Priorities Research Program (NPRP).
