Material Science for Energy Research Outcomes Seminar - May 25th, 2016, QNRF, Tornado Tower, 5th floor

Material sciences play a major role in innovation in the field of energy. Qatar National Research Strategy identified since 2012 materials as a major research cross cutting priority. An important part of QNRF funded projects in the Energy and Environment pillar addresses the issue of materials for energy applications from oil & gas industry to renewable energies. This workshop aims to showcase recent research results, present the current activities and discuss future opportunities.
