QNRF, NRF sign MoU

QNRF, NRF sign MoU
QATAR National Research Fund (QNRF) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF).

The agreement, which aims to pave the way for cooperation between the two entities, was signed at the Qatar Foundation Annual Research Conference 2016 (ARC'16).

The MoU will establish a framework that enables both QNRF and NRF to collaborate on programmes and activities that are of common interest, exchanging ideas and experiences. This comes as part of preparations for both parties to enter into a cooperation agreement in the near future, which will cover the entire spectrum of academic research including joint research, joint seminars, and researcher exchange, among others.

Both Professor Min Keun Chung, NRF president, and Dr Abdul Sattar al Taie, Executive Director of QNRF, highlighted the significance of such collaboration to address areas of common interest.

Dr Taie said:"This is an important step on the way to developing a cooperative agreement with a well-established research entity like the National Research Foundation of Korea. We are glad to further our relationships with the Republic of Korea in order to strengthen our portfolio of international collaboration. I am confident that this MoU will open doors for important mutual benefits for our organisations in the near future."

"This meeting is an excellent opportunity to initiate a fruitful and constructive collaboration with Qatar. We are excited to start a long-term relationship, working together on joint programmes and activities, and exchanging ideas," said Professor Chung.

Alongside representatives from QNRF, a large delegation from Qatar attended the meeting, including officials from Qatar Foundation Research and Development (QF R&D), Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP), Qatar University and Hamad Bin Khalifa University research institutes.

Attendees from Korea included the NRF president, a delegation from NRF Korea, the Korea Institute for Advancement of Technology and Korea Internet & Security Agency.
