KAUST Social Responsibility  

Economic Independence Program

The aim is to create economic opportunities that provide sustainable employment for local individuals. We will do this by securing strategic partnerships with reputable local industries and joint ventures with local not-for-profit organizations.


Capabilities Development Program

We want to enhance local individuals’ employability by supporting vocational training and promoting lifelong learning. KAUST carefully designs its training programs to maximize use of its existing skillsbase, while outsourcing where necessary to ensure the needs of the communities are met.
