The Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences has officially entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Korea Institute for Science and Information Technology (KISTI) to promote scientific culture, foster digital capabilities within society, and advance education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The signing ceremony took place at the Kuwait Foundation’s headquarters in Kuwait City, with the presence of Dr. Amina Farhan, the Foundation’s Director General, Dr. Jaesoo Kim, the President of KISTI, South Korean Ambassador Chung Byung-ha, and officials from both entities, reports Al-Jarida daily.

This collaboration aligns with the Kuwait Foundation’s vision to contribute to the development of digital capabilities in areas such as science and technology data, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, data coding and analysis, robotics, cybersecurity, and digital transformation.

The MoU outlines the potential establishment of joint programs aimed at enhancing the digital skills of students and professionals across various sectors, as well as developing the capabilities of researchers in Kuwait.

The memorandum emphasizes cooperation in research and development projects related to artificial intelligence and digital transformation, along with initiatives to develop and disseminate educational content online. Model projects that facilitate technology transfer are also outlined.

The agreement encourages both parties to engage target beneficiaries through the dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge, including the organization of workshops, science, technology, and innovation programs, the development of online STEM education content, and other educational activities aimed at enhancing capabilities in these areas.

In the past year, the Korea Institute of Science and Information Technology hosted a delegation from the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, comprising students and officials.

During this visit, students participated in scientific events focusing on applications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, modeling and simulation in science and mathematics, as well as computer programming, supercomputer technologies, and GPT chat applications.

Notably, KISTI is a prestigious international research institute funded by the South Korean government, located in the Daedeok Science Area in the Korean city of Daejeon.
