The KINDI Centre for Computing Research (KINDI) at Qatar University – College of Engineering (QU-CENG) participated in the strategic grant consortium ‘Platform Grants’ funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

KINDI has been selected by Open University (UK), which established a consortium of 17 top research labs around the world. The consortium has been awarded a research grant equivalent to US$1,906,905 (QAR6,940,077.06) for the next four years.         

The main objective of the project is to build collaborative research relationship with partners around the globe including KINDI, and engage in various pilot projects and empirical studies in the areas of ‘Secure, Adaptive, Usable Software Engineering’. This grant will allow the project team to enhance the existing partner networks in these areas and to develop impact pathways for their research, going beyond the scope and lifetime of individual research projects.

KINDI Director Dr Noora Fetais said they are proud to be a part of the grant, proof of the high quality research the centre is providing in collaboration with local and international partners, which in a way makes a good difference in the cyber security research outcomes.
