Welcome to Enrichment in the Spring 2016

Our theme for this spring is Exploring Innovation, from trends and developments worldwide to the great work being done here at KAUST. We’ll welcome Thomas Skalak of the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation for a keynote on innovation and celebrate World Intellectual Property Day with a symposium and keynote from Peter L. Hoffman of The Boeing Company. We'll also introduce STEAM Innovation Challenge, a student program where small teams work to solve big problems facing the world in 48 hours.

We’re proud to announce our first ever jazz festival, with three days of live music and movies, as well as an opening night with a movie screening and community photography exhibition. With all this and a KAUST sculpture tour, a lecture on architectural innovations in our campus, a special creativity hub at the auditorium and many other events, you’ll be able to explore and enjoy innovation and creativity in all kinds of ways. Take a look at the full schedule below and prepare to be inspired!

Enrichment in the Spring is an educational program open to all members of the KAUST community and invited guests. We thank the Entrepreneurship Center, Innovation & Economic Development department, Office of the Arts, Graduate Affairs, The Visualization lab and the Core Labs, IT, University Support Services, The KAUST Photography SDG, The Water Desalination Research Center, The University Library, Recreation department, Marcom and the KAUST Schools.
