Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) is a national research institute, established in 2010 by Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, a private, non-profit organization that is supporting Qatar’s transformation from carbon economy to knowledge economy. Qatar has made a commitment to be a leading center for research and development excellence and innovation, largely driven by Qatar Foundation's Research and Development enterprise.
QCRI supports Qatar Foundation’s mission by helping to build Qatar’s innovation and technology capacity. It is focused on tackling large-scale computing challenges that address national priorities for growth and development.
In doing this, QCRI conducts world-class multidisciplinary computing research that is relevant to the needs of Qatar, the wider Arab region, and the world. We perform cutting-edge research in such areas as Arabic language technologies, social computing, data analytics, distributed systems, cyber security and computational science and engineering.
The research we conduct at QCRI is aligned with the Qatar National Research Strategy, and supports the strategic priorities outlined in Qatar National Vision 2030.
