Saudi Arabia announces plans for nanotech institute

December 3, 2007 — Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah has approved a proposal to create a nanotechnology institute, which will be named after him, at a facility in Riyadh.

The institute will serve as an advanced technology research center for King Saud University.

“The future of the country depends on its youth, which in turn depends on human resources development,” said Prince Naif in announcing King Abdullah’s initiative. “The scientific community must exert more effort to train and qualify the Saudi youth.”
