QNRF-Funded Research Leads to World-Class Roads in Qatar

QNRF PR 0 1949

Research funded by Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), a member of Qatar Foundation (QF), has resulted in stronger and more sustainable roads in the country with advanced national standards for pavement construction. “Road quality is driven by specifications - if you specify old technology, you get lower quality. Similarly, if you update your specifications and technologies, the road construction industry steps up its game to deliver to high specifications,” said Dr Eyad Masad, professor at Texas A&M University at Qatar, who led the research.

Research Outcome Seminar on Catalysts and Catalytic Processes

Qatar National Research Fund cordially invites you to its Research Outcome Seminar (ROS) on “Catalysts and Catalytic Processes”. A substance that can speed up the reaction process without being consumed by it, catalysts are often perfect candidates to lower the activation energy or modify the mechanism of a process. Today, catalysis is significant in industry and industrial research and various catalysts are constantly being developed to meet economic and environmental objectives. A homogeneous or heterogeneous catalyst that delivers a different reaction with lower activation energy and better selectivity control can have a significant impact on process feasibility, on the environment, and
