Strategic Research Grants

These projects receive annual funds from His Majesty’s Trust Fund Grant for supporting research. The University has decided to confine the Grant to specifically strategic research projects in the areas of environment, technology, communications, oil, health, engineering, and social sciences. They last for 3-4 years and may be extended for further time so as to verify and develop the findings for useful applications. In order to benefit the social and economic development plans of the Sultanate.

Joint Research Grants

The University has signed joint agreements with some universities to promote bilateral cooperation in different areas, including research. In 2003, SQU and the UAE University concluded an agreement on research collaboration. Since then, a number of projects have been carried out and equally funded by the two institutions. They cover agriculture, medicine, engineering and economics. Other joint projects have been conducted with Malaysian universities are under way.
