During the event, QSTP will address the different needs of the innovation community in Qatar and the wider region, bringing together some of the world’s brightest industry minds.

ARC’16 will take place from March 22 to 23 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC), providing a platform to highlight the importance of strategic investment in research and innovation for the benefit of Qatar’s society. The event will also address the country’s national Research Grand Challenges on a global scale.

The parallel sessions will be led by Mr. Hamad Al Kuwari, QSTP Managing Director; Ms. Haya Al-Ghanim, QSTP Innovation Director; and Dr. Danny Ramadan, Acting Director of Strategic Research at QSTP.

To further explain QSTP’s invaluable role in bridging the gap between research and commercialization, while facilitating the transformation of inspiring ideas into products that address various market demands, the sessions at ARC’16 will highlight the different support programs it offers to the community.

Speakers will elaborate on the services, which include: the ‘Proof of Concept Fund’, aimed at providing grants to focus on product development; the ‘Accelerator’, designed to help entrepreneurs and researchers assess the commercial viability of a business idea; and the ‘Incubator’, which facilitates the establishment of technology development start-ups.
