External Research Programs - Institutional Funding Program

In an effort by the Ministry of Education, represented by the Research and Innovation Agency, to support research and development in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by supporting universities and cooperating with other partners in the research and development system, an institutional funding program was approved to support research and development in Saudi universities. Accordingly, King Abdulaziz University, represented by the Vice Presidency for Postgraduate Studies and Scientific Research, launched the institutional funding program for research and development, which is supported by the Ministry of Education, based on the university’s keenness to support researchers and the research process. The program aims to raise the quality of scientific publishing, support basic and applied research at the university, and also support research laboratories and infrastructure, as a contribution to achieving the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, in addition to enhancing the university’s research strengths, supporting patents and developing prototypes. The university's research priorities also included matters related to the sustainability of natural resources, artificial intelligence, health care, industry development, and Islamic values and society.
