Call for Applications - Support Fund 2023
In today's world, where complex and growing problems necessitate innovative solutions, it is critical to enable and support scientific research, as well as to strengthen the link between scientific research's objectives and outputs on the one hand, and the development and technological priorities of various sectors on the other, which requires directing scientific research toward innovation. Investing in scientific research and innovation is an investment in the future of societies, inspiring ideas and initiatives, and it is a method to address not just the essential necessities of each society, but also to motivate efforts toward a better future.
At the Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation, we believe that scientific research and researchers play a critical role in sharing information, broadening perceptions, and developing practical answers to society's most pressing issues and demands. The long-term social impact of applied scientific research, particularly that which recognizes the importance of diversity in the research team, alignment with development priorities, and innovation direction, invites us all to participate in supporting scientific research, recognizing researchers, and stimulating more scientific, technological, and societal innovation.
