For the Private Sector

KFAS provides a number of programs for the private sector that aims to develop human capital and research within enterprises. We fund research and seminars that help identify obstacles and devise solutions to Kuwait’s economic challenges, we offer capacity-building innovation training programs for private sector employees and we facilitate collaboration with international institutions to enhance business development and research to further transform Kuwait’s economy into a knowledge-based economy.

Commission Applied Studies for the Private Sector
KFAS fosters knowledge enhancement, with the overarching aim to contribute to the production and distribution of relevant, accurate, and reliable data on Kuwait’s macro and micro-economic environment.  It does so by funding Applied Studies, which identity opportunities on macro-economic, industry, and sectoral levels, and are specific to science, technology and innovation.

The Applied Studies process is twofold, were we both initiate new research projects that reflect the needs and opportunities of science, technology and innovation, or support new research projects that do so.
