At the Research and initiatives Center (RIC) of Prince Sultan University, we are deeply committed to fostering an environment of innovation and recognizing the invaluable contributions of our researchers. With this in mind, we are excited to introduce our General Recognitions initiative. This initiative has been established to honor and celebrate researchers who have demonstrated exemplary achievements and have made a profound impact in their respective fields.
Categories of Recognition:
Our recognitions are designed to cater to various forms of research brilliance and encompass a range of categories, ensuring all aspects of research excellence are acknowledged.
There's no need for researchers to submit an application or nomination for these recognitions. We understand that true impact often speaks for itself. The Research and Initiatives Center (RIC) uses a comprehensive approach by evaluating scholarly contributions through established databases such as Scopus and other reputable publishers.
Our selection committee regularly monitors these databases to identify researchers from Prince Sultan University who have achieved notable citations, produced high-impact publications, or made significant contributions to their field. The committee conducts thorough reviews on a periodic basis to ensure that deserving researchers are duly acknowledged for their groundbreaking work.
This category aims to recognize faculty members and researchers who have demonstrated proactive efforts in protecting their inventions and innovations through the Saudi Authority of Intellectual Property via the IP Office. Intellectual property (IP) protection ensures the safeguarding of novel ideas, inventions, and research outcomes. By obtaining IP rights, researchers not only gain legal protection against potential infringements but also emphasize the novelty, utility, and potential impact of their work. Recognizing and rewarding such efforts can further promote a culture of innovation within the institution, inspiring more researchers to ensure their intellectual assets are adequately protected and commercialized. The RIC acknowledges the significance of IP rights and seeks to motivate faculty members to actively participate in securing them for their innovative solutions and inventions.
At the Research and Initiatives Center (RIC) at Prince Sultan University, our unwavering commitment lies in nurturing a culture of innovation and recognizing the priceless contributions of our researchers.
