Thirty QSLP students who are enrolled in American institutions studying various scientific research disciplines participated in the event, organized by QSLP in San Francisco, USA. The workshop, the first of its kind, aims to support QSLP students in their scientific research pursuits by providing them with effective communication skills, crucial in developing their professional relationships with colleagues and research supervisors. Established by Qatar Foundation's Research and Development in 2008, QSLP is a unique career development programme that has been designed for undergraduate and postdoctoral candidates, who are keen to build a fulfilling career in a wide range of science-related fields and to contribute to Qatar's national research agenda. Dr Ayman Bassil, Head of Research Training and Development at Qatar Foundation's Research, explained the aims of the workshop. "The Qatar Science Leadership Program is keen to communicate with its members and support them throughout the year.

The workshop helps our students with their undergraduate and graduate educational pursuits".

In addition, selected students made 10-minute presentations to clarify and explain their educational track. On the second day, 15 Master's students and PhD researchers on the program's Research Scientist Track presented on some of the challenges they face in their work, and discussed potentially viable solutions. QSLP recently announced the launch of its seventh cycle and expects to receive applications from students wishing to enlist on one of the program's four tracks.
