Prof. Yury Gogotsi visited Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, March 2013

Rus На русском Eng In English

Prof. Yury Gogotsi was invited to QF, Doha, Qatar,to discuss innovations and technologies, developing the latest scientific achievements   and their commercializing. Also he visited Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, that is a branch campus of Carnegie Mellon University, chartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. In 2004, Qatar Foundation invited Carnegie Mellon to join Education City, a groundbreaking center for scholarship and research.

Qatar Foundation, located in Doha, Qatar, is an independent, private, non-profit, chartered organization founded in 1995 by decree of His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar, to support centers of excellence which develop people's abilities through investments in human capital, innovative technology, state of the art facilities and partnerships with elite organizations, thus raising the competency of people and the quality of life.

Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) aims to support Qatar on its journey from a carbon economy to a knowledge economy by unlocking human potential.Professor Yury gogotsi in Qatar

Qatari leaders have recognized the fallibility of oil and natural gases as a long-term economic model, especially for a smaller area such as Qatar. In the past years, large initiatives have been established to develop Qatar as an intellectual economy, with particular expertise in the field of common regional energy and industrial processes.

Qatar Foundation's main aim in this field is to help build Qatar's innovation and technology capacity by developing and commercializing solutions in key sciences. It is also developing a research strategy built on complementing Qatar-based research efforts with expertise from abroad, to build networks that provide home-grown solutions for Qatar and the region. A research division was established at Qatar Foundation in 2007 to manage developing a scientific community in Qatar. It has hosted several international conferences in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology, and stem cell research. Qatar National Vision 2030 outlines how the nation will use its vast revenues from hydrocarbon resources to transform itself into a modern knowledge-based economy. National Vision 2030 gave QF an exciting mandate: to be the ‘engine’ driving the development of Qatar’s people, with the headline aim of ‘Unlocking Human Potential’.

Education City, Qatar Foundation's flagship project is envisioned as a Center of Excellence in education and research that will help transform Qatar into a knowledge-based society.

Cleaning up electromagnetic pollution by containing the emissions with a thin coating of a nanomaterial called MXene

MXene is a nanomaterial that is both thin and light, but also has the unique ability to block and absorb electromagnetic radiation, which makes it the perfect for use as shielding in electronics devices.

 According to the authors, when electromagnetic waves come in contact with MXene, some are immediately reflected from its surface, while others pass through the surface but they lose energy amidst the material’s atomically thin layers.
