The Kuwait Institute of Scientific Researches

The Kuwait Institute of Scientific Research (KISR) was established in 1967 to foster interest in scientific research and has done pioneer work in a number of areas of importance to Kuwait since its founding. Unfortunately most of its resources were plundered during the occupation and a great deal of important work was lost. It is, however, getting back on its feet and a number of projects have already received approval.
