Qatar and the US have announced landmark collaborations among its top institutions including a joint research mission on water detection between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Qatar Foundation (QF) as well as further cultural and educational exchanges between the two countries.
The announcements were made during the Culture and Education Cooperation Session at the Third Annual US-Qatar Strategic Dialogue held virtually on Tuesday and following the signing of the US-Qatar Statement of Intent establishing the Qatar-US 2021 Year of Culture.
The exciting new Qatar-US collaboration announcements also include an MoU signed between the world’s largest museum and research complex Smithsonian Institution and Qatar Museums (QM) and QF. The partnership will pave way for organising exhibitions and projects as well as an exchange of expertise between the institutions.
Also announced was the expansion of the Fulbright programme of the US to QF which will host two US Fulbright scholars at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) in January.
