Qatar University Young Scientists Center (QU-YSC) has announced the launch of the Fourth Youth Research Forum 2022, under the title of ‘The World Cup and Qatar 2022: Challenges and Aspirations’, in co-operation with Qatar National Commission for Education, Culture and Science.
The event’s activities will focus on various topics that include: national identity, social and cultural heritage, science, medicine and engineering, along with the legal area as new addition this year. Undergraduate and postgraduate researchers in Qatar, Gulf and international universities can submit their scientific research and present their output on a rich platform for exchanging knowledge, expanding innovation methods, and disseminating research efforts.
The forum provides an opportunity for competition between the participants, which enhances skills, capabilities, research outputs and adds motivation to researchers. Researchers will be able to participate with research papers that define the research questions and objectives, the problem, data collection tools, the foundations of scientific experiments, if any, and the research results. They can also participate with scientific posters that summarise the results of their research in a concise and attractive way.
All entries will be evaluated based on several criteria, the most important of which are the novelty of the submitted topics, outputs and results, the extent of the impact and addition to the research community.
Valuable prizes will be awarded to the top three researchers in the scientific research category and the top three in the scientific posters category, chosen by the jury composed of professors and researchers with extensive experience in different fields.
Prof Maryam Al-Maadeed, vice president for Research and Graduate Studies, said, “The research sector is supporting all initiatives that enrich the research culture, enhance the skills of young people, and integrate them into the research experience based on scientific foundations, the youth research forum is a great opportunity for young researchers to present their research, share and discuss it with researchers and experts.”
Prof Noora Al-Thani, director of the centre, said, “We are keen to be a hub for young researchers and catalysts for innovation based on research, and we seek through the forum to provide opportunities for intellectual and scientific convergence for young researchers. The exchange of experiences and discussion of research topics, are among the most important activities of the forum that contribute to the development of research outputs and verify their impact and desired benefit.”
Dr Hamda Hasan Al-Sulaiti, secretary-general of Qatar National Commission for Education, Culture and Science, said the Youth Research Forum is a viable opportunity and a common space for Qatar’s youth to meet with the world’s youth of different race, gender, colour and religion to share views, ideas and thoughts on the challenges the world faces today. They will be in a good position to find the ways and means to promote principles of international peace and security, respect human rights, reject violence, and encourage the peaceful resolution of disputes, she said.
Dr Hamada concluded her address by extending her profound thanks and appreciation to the President of Qatar University, faculty members, and students for holding such a well-organised Forum for a long time to ensure that it will be a success and come out in a proper manner for hosting the prestigious sporting event that will be covered by the media from around the world.
