Qatar National Research Fund’s mission is to advance knowledge and education by supporting original, competitively selected research in all fields of sciences, with an emphasis on the following four pillars of the Qatar National Research Strategy (QNRS):
- Energy and environment
- Computer Science and ICT
- Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities
To complement its vision of fostering a research culture in Qatar, QNRF introduced the Conference and Workshop Sponsorship Program (CWSP). The program aims to connect researchers in Qatar to their peers and colleagues, both at home and abroad, by exposing researchers or students to new research directions, findings, and education techniques.
The CWSP will provide a hub for informing scientists from abroad about research opportunities in Qatar through interaction with their counterparts here, and encourage them to explore the potential for collaboration.
