Among the selective top 17 research labs around the world

The KINDI Center for Computing Research (KINDI) at Qatar University College of Engineering (QU-CENG) recently participated in the strategic grant consortium “Platform Grants” funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The Open University (UK) has established a consortium of selective top 17 research labs around the world, and KINDI is one of them. The consortium has been awarded a research grant equivalent to US$1,906,905 (QR6,940,077.06) for the next four years.

The main objective of this project is to build collaborative research relationships with these partners around the globe including KINDI, and engage in various pilot projects and empirical studies in the areas of “Secure, Adaptive, Usable Software Engineering”. This grant will allow the project team to enhance the existing partner networks in these areas and to develop impact pathways for their research, going beyond the scope and lifetime of individual research projects.

KINDI Director Dr. Noora Fetais said: “We are proud to be a part of this grant which refers to the high quality research the center is providing in collaboration with local and international partners in a way that makes a good difference in the cyber security research outcomes.”
