Our pioneering work dates back to 1976, when the late Amir, His Highness Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, turned his long-held vision to advance the state of science and technology in the country, into a reality. KFAS was established as a private non-profit organization and tasked with spearheading the vision, a role it continues to carry out to this day.

Funded by contributions from the Kuwaiti private sector, KFAS has developed and implemented many programs in pursuit of its mission to promote the development of science, education, research and a general scientific culture.
