The KAUST Sensor initiative has been running since 2015 and is a unique opportunity that came directly from the office of the Senior Vice President for Research, Prof Jean Frechét. It involves multiple KAUST investigators and 13 international experts working on 5 different projects over the areas of atmosphere, subsurface, marine, chemistry, and health. The interdisciplinary meetings which take place annually aim to transform sensor technologies and explore novel applications, create a global group of sensor pioneers and mentor a new generation of sensor experts in the kingdom and the world.
