Research Projects


ARAMCO | KACST | GEM


KACST Science & Technology Strategic Grants

Currently Alfaisal University Faculty Members have 14 approved projects through the KACST Science and Technology Strategic Grants completion. A total of 23 projects were submitted in 2009 and 2010 giving Alfaisal University a success rate of 61%, which according to our understanding is the highest success rate in the Kingdom. In March 2011 an additional five projects were submitted to the same program. These proposals are still under the review process by AAAS (American Association for Advancement of Science). Overall, KACST has been very timely and professional in the review process for the submitted proposals.
