Saudi Arabia Bridges Gap Between Industry and Academic Research Through New Program

Riyadh: The Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources (MIM), in collaboration with the Research, Development, and Innovation Authority (RDIA), has launched a program to improve industrial and mining enterprises’ access to over 30 high-quality research and study centers in Saudi universities, medical institutions, and research laboratories across the country.

In a press release today, the ministry announced that the program offers a gateway to the National Unified Portal for open research infrastructure.

Factory workers, miners, investors, and entrepreneurs will now have access to this portal.

This access will unlock valuable resources that users can leverage for the latest studies and high-quality research findings.

Collaboration opportunities exist with these scientific research centers to develop businesses, products, and technologies.

The program is designed to tap into the Kingdom’s public research infrastructure, including research centers at leading Saudi universities and advanced medical faciliti
es, such as King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST).
