Qatar Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) hosted the final ceremony of Huawei’s Seeds for the Future programme 2023, honouring the winners of the first phase of the programme at its headquarters on Saturday.

The regional event aims to develop local talent, share knowledge, increase the ICT sector awareness and foster a digital community for young ICT talents.

Held under the patronage of Qatar’s Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA), A total of 175 students from elite universities across 15 Middle East and Central Asia (ME &CA) countries participated in the first phase of the Seeds for the Future programme in Doha.

This included Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the UAE, Bahrain, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Oman, Uzbekistan, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Azerbaijan, Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan. Sixteen Qatari students participated in the programme, hailing from renowned educational universities in Qatar, including Qatar University, Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Qatar Community College and the University of Doha for Science and Technology.

The first phase of the Tech4Good regional competition, aimed at empowering and engaging the youth in driving positive change within their communities, was also held in parallel.

Participating students presented their Tech4Good projects to the judges and seven outstanding teams of 40 students were selected to move on to the second phase of the Tech4Good programme, which will be held in Dubai, the UAE, from September 10 to 16 2023.

These teams represent Qatar, the UAE, Jordan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.

Two mentors, Ammar Khalid Mohammed Al Siyabi from Oman and Zomurd Ahmed Alhamdani from Iraq were selected as favourites. Ammar was chosen for his strong leadership skills, unwavering belief in the vision, effective communication and high energy. Meanwhile, Zomurd was recognised for his resilience, quiet yet impactful leadership style, adept handling of complex situations and his positive influence on the team’s dynamics.

The students participated in eight days of intensive training sessions and workshops in Qatar, which covered cutting-edge ICT technologies, scientific and technological leadership, discussions on global topics, Tech4Good group projects, etc.

Through learning and mutual exchange, participants gained a better understanding of 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud technologies, built more strengths for future growth, and improved their competitiveness in the job market.

Students also visited the exhibition hall at Huawei’s headquarters in Qatar, the National Spectrum Monitoring Center at CRA, Mada Lab, the Education City, Lusail Stadium and a tour of Doha.

Following the second phase of Tech4Good regional competition in Dubai, the UAE, the winners will then qualify to compete in the final global competition in China against other teams from around the world.
