About Us >‏ Stakeholders

Stakeholders

The primary stakeholders are:

  • Qatari society, which needs a way to retain its top talent in the field of computer science and to attract top graduates from elsewhere in the region to ensure Qatar’s sustainability in all fields;
  • Qatari industry, which needs advanced applied research solutions before they are available commercially;
  • Qatar’s government, which needs working solutions that will meet the growing needs of the country and its people.

QCRI’s research focuses on the future needs of its stakeholders by developing cutting-edge applied computing research, helping to identify specific problems and generating tested, proven solutions.

QCRI works closely with both research institutes and universities in Qatar which perform fundamental research by working together to advance their most promising basic research findings.

QCRI also works closely with Qatar Science & Technology Park to identify the most viable commercial applications generated by the Institute’s research.
