Siemens announced plans to launch a development centre in Doha, Qatar, marking a major move for the company in its drive to develop local access to specialist technology and engineering disciplines. The centre will be hosted at Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP), a home for technology-based international companies and part of the Qatar Foundation.
The centre will include an industry research laboratory that will undertake research in fields such as transportation solution system design, operability and maintainability; integrated mobility strategies such as light rail vehicles for extreme climates, and energy assessment for light rail systems.
Siemens also plans to set up a clinical training facility to deliver courses for clinical applications for doctors and technicians in Qatar.
