Let’s Create History in 2022

Dr. Nezar Hamza, President of AUK addressing students and guests for the information seminar on Challenge 22

For the 2nd consecutive cycle, the American University of Kuwait (AUK) will be the Country Partner in Challenge 22, a Qatar-led initiative, launched by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC). The purpose of the initiative is to discover creative ideas that can make the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar a more cost effective, sustainable and safe venture. The project will provide generous research and development grants to participants with the most innovative ideas.

AUK hosted an information session on October 17th, where representatives from Challenge 22 introduced the initiative to the public and provided an overview of the application process and criteria for participation. The representatives also shared success stories from the cycle in early 2015. In its role as country partner for Challenge 22, AUK will promote the initiative locally, and encourage local innovators to participate and represent Kuwait. The event was open to members of the AUK community and the public.
