ABOUT—KAUST Discovery

KAUST Discovery website and magazine were launched in 2014 to promote the University’s research progress in a way that is accessible to a broad audience. We use a journalistic style of writing and as many home-grown images as possible to communicate the latest stories about our people and their scientific discoveries. 

KAUST Discovery actively follows research that is at the heart of the University’s mission to enhance the welfare of society through special focus on food, water, energy and environment—four areas of global significance. Our stories reflect the journey our faculty, researchers and students are taking as they strive to grow edible crops in salty conditions, reuse precious water resources, maximize engine output and explore the Red Sea.

The website publishes stories weekly, and our award-wining magazine is published twice per year. We hope that both platforms provide you with opportunities to engage with our people and to learn about advances in their research. Enjoy reading these stories that tell of our journey to produce impactful research at KAUST through discovery and innovation.
