KAUST Impact Spring 2022


Dear KAUST community,

I am proud to present the 5th edition of KAUST Impact — a bi-annual magazine that showcases KAUST’s impact across the spectrum of our university’s activities. 

KAUST Impact Spring 2022 celebrates some of the top accomplishments in science and engineering that have translated from KAUST research, education and innovation to society, government and industry over the course of the past six months.

Each issue offers a themed special section; this one, on entrepreneurship — from spinouts and spin-ins to startups and training. Whereas most universities appreciate only gradually their potential for transforming the economies in which they find themselves, KAUST was chartered for economic transformation – of not just any variety, but of the exciting and highly innovative transformation that comes from its own “deep technology”. 

Take a moment to celebrate these and other stories across KAUST’s disciplines, and also the hard work of your teams and colleagues as we mark another milestone in this university’s growing body of research developments, and engagements with local communities and global partners.

Tony F. Chan
