Kuwaiti Global Bridge Initiative working at high speed

As reported in Arab Times Online, the milestones achieved so far include five partnership agreements between Kuwaiti firms and international companies; the introduction of 23 new technologies in life sciences, information systems and renewable energy for development in Kuwait; and the the completion of an entrenpreneurship training program by 24 Kuwaiti professionals as well as a Technology Transfer best practices training program held in Austin for eight Kuwaiti professionals.
