MD reveals three new buildings will be added to facility
Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP) is to expand, adding three new buildings, only five years after it opened, managing director Hamad Al Kuwari has said.
Revealing the centre in Doha has reached 95% capacity, Al Kuwari said the expansion would help to create more opportunities among technology entrepreneurs as well as additional jobs.
There are now more than 40 tenants at QSTP, including American conglomerate General Electric.
QSTP is this week hosting the 31st International Association of Science Parks (IASP) World Conference, a gathering of more than 600 delegates from technology and innovation firms and research centres.
In the first time the conference has been held in the Arab world, delegates are discussing the role of science and technology parks as catalysts for technology development, as well as exploring new models of support for start-ups and established businesses working on new ideas.
