Additionally, the project aims to contribute to creating a “productive and effective” scientific and educational society and disseminate “positive” competition among university students, which stimulates
them to enhance their scientific and practical skills and support sustainable development by raising level of human resources and developing higher education to rely on creative projects and research.
