“Industry engagement is an integral component not only of Innovation and Economic Development’s mission, but also the mission of KAUST,” said Imad Abukhalaf, manager of KAUST’s Industry Engagement Office (IEO). “We really think of ourselves as integral enablers to accomplishing KAUST’s mission.”
The IEO is responsible for all facets of industry engagement and is industry’s gateway to KAUST. The office actively recruits partner companies who are interested in setting up a base on-campus in the University’s Research and Technology Park. The state-of–the-art Core Labs and KAUST itself are great selling points for potential industrial partners.
