Qatar University (QU) will take some of its best research to the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which will be held on June 2 to 5 under the patronage of the President of the Russian Federation, as part of Qatar’s participation as a guest country at the event.

The education, research and innovation institution will join over 50 leading Qatari public and private sectors entities as part of the State of Qatar delegation as a Guest Country.

QU will exhibit its research-based prototypes such as a portable device that can test air quality, a cooling technology prototype for open areas and early genetic diagnostic testing for athletes. The prototypes, with already existing patents, are unique business propositions to issues facing the world today, with an aim to develop partnership opportunities with Russian stakeholders.

With over 16 fully-fledged interdisciplinary research centres on topics ranging from biomedicine to sustainable development, Qatar University continues to transform to promote and achieve distinctive excellence in education, research, institution, and engagement.

“Qatar University has always been at the forefront of innovation in Qatar, while playing an increasing role in supporting Qatar’s economic and social growth and development as an instigator of innovation fostering networks of knowledge. We are thrilled to be sharing some of Qatar University’s best designs and research projects at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum,” said Dr. Hassan Rashid Al-Derhman, President of Qatar University.
