Emerging Technologies in Solar PV: identifying and Cultivating Potential Winners

 Jaap Kalkman PhD, Samrat Bose, Adnan Merhaba, Henry Bradley
Description: Numerous recent scholarly articles address and confirm the positive relationship between R&D and total factor productivity. They include: “The impact of research and development on economic growth: The case of the MENA countries” (2015) by Lamia Ben Amor and Naceur Ben Zina of the University of Economics and Management of Sfax, Tunisia, “The modern drivers of productivity” (2014) by Francesco Venturini of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, London, and “The Impacts of Research and Development Expenditures” (2011) by John J. Wetter of the University of Maryland. For example, “Mission Hope” in the UAE, which aims to send an unmanned space probe to Mars by 2020. Further, KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology) in Saudi Arabia has one of the fastest-growing research and citation records of any university in the world, and the “Manama” project in Qatar aims to develop a cutting-edge, secure computer model that could allow the use of sensitive data on untrusted platforms without any security ris.
