Qatar Foundation carries out this mission through three strategic 'pillars': education, science and research, and community development. QF’s work in the education field has brought a number of international universities to Qatar to help develop an education sector in which young people can develop the attitudes and skills required for a knowledge economy.Its main science and research agenda is to build Qatar's innovation and technology capacity by developing and commercializing solutions through key sciences. Its community development programs aim to help foster a progressive society, while also enhancing the cultural landscape, protecting Qatar’s heritage and addressing immediate social needs in the community.
Joint venture partnerships in the areas of design, ICT, telecommunications, policy studies and event management also contribute to fulfilling the objectives of Qatar Foundation.
