Expansion work on Kuwait’s Scientific Centre — which began in June 2018 at a cost of $118.2m (KWD36m) — will be completed on 30 June, 2021, with a three-storey building covering 3ha being constructed as part of the project.

The Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science (KFAS) has supported this project.

According to Kuwait’s state-held news agency Kuna, the centre's expansion is part of HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s vision.

Rana Al-Nibari, general manager of the Scientific Centre, said the exterior of the old building will also be renovated as part of the project.

Al-Nibari added that the finished structure will include classrooms, training halls, and new facilities.

Deputy director of KFAS, Dr Salem Al-Hajrof said that the centre was established in 2000 in the presence of the late Amir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. At the time, the centre was built at a cost of $82m (KWD25m), reported Kuna

Al-Nibari revealed that the initial agreement for the expansion of the centre was signed in April 2013.
