A WEFRAH delegation visited key institutions in Qatar to develop research, extension, and educational opportunities that address the common interests of Lebanon and Qatar. The visit followed an earlier visit to AUB by representatives of the Texas A&M Energy Institute and Texas A&M-Qatar, also with the purpose of implementing the existing MoU. Grouped into health sciences, engineering, and agriculture, members visited agricultural and industrial complexes in Qatar and participated in a high-level joint meeting with faculty counterparts from TAMU and TAMU-Q.
The delegation also visited senior executives of the Qatar National Research Foundation (QNRF) to explore opportunities for funding and collaboration in research and education. Finally, the delegation met faculty from Qatar University, who agreed to pursue joint research collaborations under the WEFRAH umbrella.
