About this Event
The conference will explore the critical role of Arab scientific research in solving global problems. The conference will therefore aims to provoke forward thinking on the role of science, innovation and research in solving global problems related to sustainability as well as the potential of Industry 4.0 for the implementation of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SD). Although the latest international rankings of the world’s scientific organizations as Nature Index in 2019 placed King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia among world’s top 100 research facilities but still the overall collective impact of the Arabic scientific contribution is not very significant across the world. The conference brings together senior and high level intellectual and practice-based contributors on the role of Arab scientists in solving global problems such as the current global Covid-19 pandemic and help policy-makers to constructs an “ideal role” for strengthening the Arab scientific research.
