The Arab states of the Gulf, currently heavily reliant on oil and gas exports, have stated their

intention to promote economic diversification and have embarked on reforming existing

institutions for higher education, scientific research, and technology innovation.

The region has witnessed huge population growth in recent decades, and in some cases (e.

g. Saudi Arabia) almost half the population is under the age of twenty-five and in need of access

to quality education and meaningful employment opportunities.

This book provides an in-depth discussion of what is needed to accelerate the development

of science, technology and innovation in the Gulf. Among other issues, the authors discuss the

need for regional collaboration, and tackle systemic challenges such as immigration policies,

career incentives for GCC citizens, and increased inclusion of women in the workforce.
