Qatar University (QU) Young Scientists Center (YSC), in cooperation with the Qatar National Commission for Education, Culture and Science, presents a global platform to support the scientific research movement and encourage young people to engage in research and creativity through the Youth Research Forum.

The forum includes a group of young researchers and experts who meet from different countries to present research results, support researchers from the undergraduate and graduate levels, and work to reduce the research gap by highlighting its most prominent challenges. The research forum, which is held annually, is considered one of the most important scientific and research events in Qatar University and the research sector and receives support and appreciation for its outstanding importance from various quarters.

Through the research forum, QU aims to achieve several goals, the most important is to contribute to achieving research priorities at Qatar University that are in line with Qatar National Vision 2030 and respond to major social and economic challenges locally and globally. In addition to forming a network of young and promising researchers who play their role in enriching the scientific research community at Qatar University and beyond, and contribute to discoveries that affect various aspects of life. The conference is also a unique opportunity to integrate Qatar University students into interdisciplinary research and present their research outputs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, humanities, and social sciences to maximize their impact on the State of Qatar. The Forum Committee also provides criticism and support for the participating research to improve its quality and enforce its publication in prestigious scientific journals.

The third and fourth youth forums witnessed great and remarkable success at the local and international levels by attracting hundreds of research papers to participate and dozens of researchers. It is worth mentioning that the third edition of the forum was under the theme “Identity and Cultural Tourism: Towards a Sustainable Culture and Legacy”, in which 20 papers from 5 countries were presented. The fourth edition was entitled “The World Cup and Qatar 2022: Challenges and Aspirations”, in which 150 papers were presented from 15 countries. The annual topics are chosen to keep pace with the developments of the times and the issues that require efforts and scientific discoveries to reach solutions to them.

The Qatar University Young Scientists Center and its leadership are keen to continue developing the youth research forum and innovating opportunities and ways to increase its impact on society. Prof. Noora Jaber Al-Thani, Director of the Qatar University Center for Young Scientists, said in a speech “Scientific research is the gateway to development for all countries and is considered one of the priorities of international universities as it is one of the most important pillars of development in the fields of science, technology, creativity, and innovation. Therefore, the great interest in this forum lies as one of the center’s initiatives, which is working to prepare and prepare a generation of Qatari researchers.”
