The Palestine Academy for Science and Technology signed MOU with The Researchist, enabling this research community to work under its umbrella and marking the beginning of establishing a “ Junior Scientists Research Academy” for early career researchers, scientists and scholars in Palestine
This step is a continuation of the Academy’s policy to assist Palestinian researchers, enhance communication and networking with Palestinian scientists at national level and in the Diaspora. The Academy will provide administrative support and consultation through its network and communications to empower The Researchist, and will provide the needed space for them within the Academy’s building in order to hold activities.
The Researchist is a scientific research community for ambitious youth, which organizes workshops in research methodology and provides research opportunities for students in health sciences, engineering and natural sciences. The community began its journey as an initiative established by medical students in 2019 at An-Najah National University, then it expanded to include students from different universities in Gaza and West Bank. Now, The Researchist contains students from several Arab countries such as Syria, Jordan and Egypt. Currently we are carrying out online and offline workshops and we aspire to enter the research world in fields of humanities and social sciences. The Researchist community aims to make scientific research, beside, spreading the culture of research and upgrading research skills of university students.
The Researchist will work, through its presence under the umbrella of the Academy to build a whole new generation of young researchers from undergraduate, graduate and post graduate students through providing research opportunities and workshops to improve their skills in scientific research.
