KAUST Sensor Initiative
KAUST Sensor initiative has been running since 2015 and is a unique
opportunity that came directly from the office of the Senior Vice
President for Research, Prof Jean Frechét. It involves multiple KAUST investigators
and 13 international experts working on 5 different projects over the
areas of atmosphere, subsurface, marine, chemistry, and health. The
interdisciplinary meetings which take place annually aim to transform
sensor technologies and explore novel applications, create a global
group of sensor pioneers and mentor a new generation of sensor experts in the kingdom and the world.
Sensor Meeting 2019:
The next Sensor Initiative Meeting will take place in KAUST April 28-30, 2019. If you have any questions please contact Naadiya Carrim (firstname.lastname@example.org).
