Over the years, KISR has played a leading role in addressing some of Kuwait’s most pressing and critical national challenges. When the government requires an expert opinion on science-related policies, it turns to us.

Our secret is simple: We are home to some of the most talented and qualified scientific professionals in the region. We are also engaged in a series of strategic partnerships, which help promote an open exchange of knowledge and expertise. 

Today, we are taking the initiative to address Kuwait’s energy security and deploying technologies to increase the supply of potable water to meet the demands of Kuwait’s growing economy. We will continue to define our strategy for sustainable environmental management through the delivery of interdisciplinary teamwork captured in our ‘Science in Action’ philosophy.
