Saudi Arabia hosts International Atomic Energy Agency representatives

  • The aim of this international organization is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy in the world

JEDDAH: The King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (KACARE) is hosting the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) representatives who arrived in the Kingdom to carry out an integrated nuclear infrastructure review (INIR).
The IAEA team will stay in the Kingdom until July 24. This review is an important reference on which the IAEA bases its assessment of the efforts being exerted by the Kingdom in developing the infrastructure to use atomic energy for peaceful purposes. The review also ensures that the national atomic energy project is harmonized with the requirements of the IAEA. Based on the review, the IAEA lends its support to the project.
The INIR is seen as a service being provided by the atomic agency to the member states to conduct an integrated and comprehensive assessment in the presence of international experts in nuclear energy programs and infrastructure development.
The aim of this international organization is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy in the world. It takes measures to prevent any country from using atomic energy for military purposes and for nuclear weapons.

Saudi women incubate creative ideas for community development

JEDDAH: The Halcyon Incubator fellowship on Friday concluded a program in Washington, DC for a group of Saudi female pioneers in social development.
Fourteen Saudi innovators working in community development on Thursday gave presentations on seven ambitious projects that highlight applications that they are seeking to implement.
The seven Saudi projects highlighted a number of unique applications, such as the online on-click link between dentists, lab technicians and labs, whose design has shown that it will make a major social change in its country and will save waiting for medical appointments and reports.
Another online project helps children with autism to improve communication skills through games and educational activities.
Another focuses on linking history and modern technology in many languages to improve tourism and make it easier for pilgrims to visit the country.
It also presented practical projects such as “Green Desert,” which seeks to contribute to solving the problem of lack of waste recycling culture in Saudi Arabia.
During his visit to the Halcyon Incubator, the director of innovation and entrepreneurship at Taibah University, Dr. Mohammed Al-Ghamdi, praised its development of social projects. He also congratulated the group of Saudi women for their innovative excellence.
The Saudi Innovations Group has spent two weeks working in the hospitality of the Halcyon Incubator, which has been named the “Kingfisher” as a symbol.
The organization seeks to promote creativity in all its forms throughout the world by stimulating and supporting creators who seek to promote the good in their communities.
The annual program of the Halcyon Incubator sponsors various groups of change-makers in the fields of arts and social projects and provides them with an environment that incubates their bold ideas and helps them to learn, gain experience and knowledge and provide them with free trial opportunities to enhance their talents and visions and transform them into influential energies in society.
