Enrichment in the Fall

Save the date for a week of discovery and research splashed with color, creativity and marine biodiversity at KAUST. 

The oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface. Our ecosystem depends on them to maintain its key functions. From microbes to whales, how much do we know about the marine biodiversity that populates the oceans? How resilient are they and what makes them resistant to global pressures? 

This year's Enrichment in the Fall program, chaired by Omar Knio, Professor of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science, is entitled "Marine Biodiversity" and will take place from October 20-23, 2018.  Enrich your knowledge and immerse yourself by attending four keynote lectures; a musical event by the KAUST Ensembles; a marine film festival; a marine photo contest and exhibition (deadline for submissions is September 30, 2018); Facebook on-air interviews, and mangroves and birds guided tours and much more.

This year's theme has been inspired by the workshop “The Future of Red Sea Biodiversity” organized by the Red Sea Research Center which will take place at KAUST from October 23-25, 2018.

We would like to thank CoastLine for sponsoring the 2018 Enrichment in the Fall Program. Thanks to our organizing partners KAUST HSE, The Library, the Office of the Arts, and the Red Sea Research Center.
