Ten skilled Bahrainis stand a chance to be trained in space science and technology by undergoing a 24-months training in Bahrain and abroad to further enhance the kingdom’s space-related capabilities.
“The endeavour corresponds directly with the objectives of Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 to advance higher education, scientific research, innovation and public services throughout the kingdom,” said Transportation and Communications Minister Kamal Ahmed, also in charge of the National Space Science Agency (NSSA). He emphasised His Majesty King Hamad’s crucial role in the development of Bahrain’s space and technology centre and highlighted that his support and guidance had been crucial to NSSA’s success.
NSSA executive chairman Dr Mohammed Ibrahim Al Aseeri said the initiative, which is being closely followed by the minister and NSSA chairman Dr Mohamed Ahmed Al Amer, will see the hiring and training of the 10 Bahrainis.
The deadline for applications is July 29. Details of the programme’s entry requirements and application process can be found at www.nssa.gov.bh.
