As an evolving agency designing all of its activities according to world-class standards, QNRF, in collaboration with QSTP, has recently taken major steps within the realm of intellectual property management across all applicable QNRF-funded research projects. Among news highlighted in this latest issue, you will find exciting developments in funding programs and events, including new Research Office of the Year and Research Team of the Year merit awards; the Fourth Undergraduate Research Experience Program competition results; National Priorities Research Program 5th cycle results, and QNRF’s Fourth Annual Forum. Additionally, we have modified our Young Scientists Research Experience Program (now termed the Junior Scientists Research Experience Program), to include a wider range of researchers at critical stages in their careers.

As always, we aim to share the most exciting developments in research funded by our programs. In this issue, you’ll get an in-depth look at advances being made in oil and gas sector technology, nanotechnology, and health care. You will also get a sense of how this research is crossing the bridge into the development arena as two projects—highlighted in our interview section and podcast—are currently being reviewed for patents.

It is clear that every few months of this Newsletter’s release marks another step up for Qatar’s research community. We are extremely proud to be an integral part of growth and development that not only benefits the country and the region but also the world at large. We invite you to explore all of the news shared within this issue and to join us in our level of enthusiasm about Qatar’s progress and the potential as outlined by a progressive national vision.
