The Center for Desert Agriculture (CDA) invites KAUST’s academic community to participate in the upcoming KAUST Workshop for Sustainable Food Security’s ePoster competition.

Show us how your research can contribute to achieving sustainable food security in the KSA and beyond, and win exciting prizes!

-       food supply,

-       water use,

Our goal is to build connections between the workshop’s visitors, including Saudi government, industry, giga project, and startup leaders, and the research conducted at KAUST.
