Completed: Qatar Science and Technology Park - QSTP (Qatar Foundation)





QSTP is a home for technology-based companies from around the world, and an incubator of start-up enterprises. Our aim is to spur the development of Qatar's knowledge economy, by providing the ideal location for companies to develop their technology and deliver it to the marketplace.

QSTP provides an environment of office and laboratory space, support services, and programs which help accelerate the commercialisation process. We are a "free zone", making it easy and attractive for foreign technology companies to come to Qatar. And as part of the renowned Qatar Foundation, we connect our tenants with an array of world-class international universities.

By accelerating the country's knowledge economy QSTP is generating opportunities for Qatar's scientists and entrepreneurs, creating valuable new businesses, and promoting a diversified and dynamic private sector.
