As part of its efforts to enrich the cultural and knowledge arena in the Islamic world, King Faisal Prize has signed a three-year agreement with the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) to put in place a cultural programme featuring a number of scientific and knowledge initiatives in the Islamic world.
The agreement was signed during the opening ceremony of the 13th session of the ISESCO General Conference, which began on October 11 in Rabat, Morocco, with the participation of education ministers from ISESCO member countries.
Under the agreement, King Faisal Prize will arrange knowledge meetings in cooperation with ISESCO to discuss the contribution of Islamic scientists and entities in the progress of humanity. During these meetings, King Faisal Prize laureates will lead lectures and seminars at universities and scientific research centres on topics of common interest. The two sides will also work together to publish the works of the winners of the King Faisal Prize.
Dr. Abdulaziz Alsebail, Secretary General of King Faisal Prize, said the partnership with ISESCO comes within the KFP strategy to strengthen cultural knowledge channels in the Arabic and Islamic region by expanding partnerships with leading institutions around the world.
