I am hopeful that our partnership will make important contributions to Qatar’s security and growing RDI ecosystem.”

Both are home to research and innovation ecosystems that encourage collaboration and commercialization of joint endeavors.”

“There’s also a shared commitment to knowledge exchange and determination to nurture future generations of innovators and leaders. We look forward to working with Barzan Holdings to ensure that the outcomes are mutually beneficial and deliver on our intended impact,” he added.

As part of the MoU, both entities will seek to create collaborative platforms for HBKU researchers and industry practitioners to enable innovative research, and push efforts to realize the outcomes of these projects as developed commercial solutions and intellectual property.
