"KAPSARC is working within the energy ecosystem to enhance cooperation with international research centers to find qualitative approaches and innovative solutions to make a sustainable future for Saudi Arabia," he said.
For his part, the Vice President of Knowledge and Analysis at KAPSARC, Dr. Fahad Al-Turki, presented 18 different topics for Saudi researchers to participate in the conference.
The topics included but were not limited to energy, development, climate change, economic diversification, diversification of energy sources in the Middle East, oil and gas economics and their geopolitical situation, in addition to the circular carbon economy, carbon capture and storage technologies, and the role of hydrogen in energy transformations.
During the meeting, Alturki announced incentive student awards for the best participating research, saying that September 9 of this year is the deadline for submitting research abstracts and December 2 is the date allotted for submitting full research.
