Manama, December 16, 2012
Bahrain's His Majesty King Hamad will today launch the King Hamad Oasis for Science and Technology and the University Studies Support project.
Education Minister Dr Majid Al Nuaimi yesterday told a press conference that the centre will be established at the Bahrain University headquarters at Sakhir campus.
It will comprise a College of Science and Technology, research centres and investment areas that provide funds for scientific research. Work on the first phase of the BD10 million ($26.7 million) project, covering an area of 20,000 sq m, will start by the end of next year, Dr Al Nuaimi said.
He said University Studies Support is a scientific and educational scheme aiming to provide support for needy students, including those with special needs, to enable them to pursue their university education.
His Majesty will today deliver a keynote speech marking National Day and Accession Day. He will patronise a ceremony celebrating both national occasions and honour citizens in recognition of their dedication in serving the country and people. – TradeArabia News Service
