The Ministry of Culture and Sports announced the opening of registration for the “Challenge and Innovation Forum” from July 7 to August 30, which will be organized by the Ministry represented by the Qatar Scientific Club during the period from 6 to 11 November under the slogan “With mind we solve the knots”.
The forum comes within the activities of Doha Capital of Culture in the Islamic World 2021. This event is unique in the region, as it includes a number of competitions, events and interactive scientific programs, which aim to motivate and encourage all segments of Qatari and international society from the youth category.
The forum will contribute to attracting the interest of the international community to learn more about the latest developments in the fields of innovation and modern technologies, in addition to providing an opportunity to learn about a number of youth participations and achievements.
The idea of the competition depends on the participation of all the innovators who have been accepted, as their individual inventions will be displayed during the dedicated exhibition that will be held during the first two days of the event.
The forum will provide an opportunity to learn about the participation and achievements of the youth, as the event will include two main competitions (innovations / hackathon) to be held over a week with international participation, in addition to the launch of individual and group competitions to develop the talents and capabilities of young people in the fields of invention, innovation and manufacturing.
The innovators will then be distributed into groups to participate in the hackathon competition that will be held during the last two days of the event. The forum will also include a number of accompanying events such as an exhibition of interactive intelligence devices, workshops to attract and motivate young people to engage in science and innovation, and much more.
