 Welcome all to a special initiative and the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The Bahrain Research Consortium was born out of an exceptional need for World class research in many areas of development in the Kingdom. Research as research and Development (R&D) is needed greatly to upgrade the capabilities and transform trajectories of the potential of SMEs, Civil Society and institutions in Bahrain and the Region. Moreover, The Bahrain Research Consortium is ready to bring forth the talented Bahraini experts and professionals that are the foundations of this initiative. So, the BRC serves both the researcher and the enterprises and entities that need assistance in all practical ways. We as a consortium want to play and contribute to the success of all partners in this initiative.
