Oman Air sponsors students attending Global Science Forum

Posted 14 August 2017 · Add Comment

Oman Air in collaboration with Oman's Scientific Research Council has sponsored the participation of six talented Omani students in the London International Forum of Young Scientists 2017.

 

The airline – which is dedicated to supporting the Sultanate’s youth - is an official partner of the Forum.

Now in its 59th year, the annual student event brings together 500 of the world’s leading young scientists from more than 70 participating countries to London.

Running from 26 July to 9 August, the two-week residential event is held at the Imperial College London and The Royal Geographical Society with day visits to other leading UK research centres and universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. The theme for this year’s event is Science to Make Life Better.

The Omani students - who received a special invitation from the Forum – will live together with the other young scientists as part of an international community, allowing them to exchange their ideas and experiences of the world to develop a greater insight into science and its application.

Attending lectures, seminars, demonstrations and debates led by world-renowned scientists, they will also have the opportunity to go out on field visits to industrial sites, research facilities and museums including the Science Museum and Natural History Museum.

Dr. Khalid bin Abdulwahab Al Balushi, Senior Manager of Government Affairs at Oman Air, said: "Oman Air recognizes the vital importance of high quality education and we are proud to be supporting this important Forum, alongside the Scientific Research Council. Backing such initiatives is an integral part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Programme and we are truly delighted to be able to offer these gifted Omani students the opportunity to build on their education to benefit the Omani economy and society. This Forum provides students with the required skills to articulate their ideas in an effective manner and progress in the international scientific community.”
