About the Office of Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange

A key objective of the National Science, Technology and Innovation Plan, which was formulated by King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology in collaboration with the Ministry of Economy and Planning, is to establish programs to enhance the position of the Kingdom in the strategic technologies that are the most important to the Kingdom. These technologies have to be imported and installed in the Kingdom through universities, research institutes and other concerned sectors. The University of Dammam, from its position as one of the leading universities in the Kingdom, will play a major role in effectively contributing to this National Plan.
