QNRF awards 19 grants for TAMUQ research activities

Texas A&M at Qatar was recently awarded 19 grants from Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) for research which will have an impact and meet the needs of Qatar.

A solar-powered desalination process, a polymer-enhanced foam to improve oil recovery in Qatari reservoirs and a wearable device to detect low blood sugar are just a few of the Texas A&M University at Qatar research projects selected to receive funding from QNRF.


Texas A&M at Qatar was awarded 19 projects from QNRF in Cycle 10 of the National Priorities Research Program. QNRF selected only 85 of the 376 proposals submitted for funding. The campus research office was also named Best Research Office of the Year for the third year in a row — and the fifth time in the past six years. The office is responsible for vetting research proposals that are submitted to QNRF for funding and managing the awarded research projects.


“We are very pleased with the outcome of Cycle 10,” said Dr César O. Malavé, dean of Texas A&M at Qatar. “Our researchers are working to address relevant, real-world challenges of relevance to the State of Qatar. Through this work, Texas A&M at Qatar directly contributes to Qatar’s goal of becoming a knowledge-based society. This latest round of awards from the Qatar National Research Fund demonstrates the high quality of the research being conducted at Texas A&M at Qatar, and we are grateful to QNRF for supporting our mission to be a valued resource to the State of Qatar as we work to support Qatar in achieving its goals.”
