King Saud University, the highest Saudi research institution, topped the issue of Corona research, with 40 papers, followed by the Ministry of Health with 34, according to an investigative report prepared by the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, which indicated that 269 research papers on the new Korna pandemic were issued within four months only, by Saudi research bodies to occupy The Kingdom ranked twenty-fifth in the world in the number of scientific papers, and the first in the Arab world and second in the Middle East region.80% for the initial stages

The report, a copy of which was seen by Al-Watan, indicated that about 80% of the scientific papers published by the Kingdom were among the initial stages of confronting the virus, that is, in forecasting, detection and monitoring of the virus, while this number decreased sharply in treatment and prevention. This is due to two reasons, the first of which is that the current stage has largely focused on exploring this virus and trying to control it, which is what directed the Saudi research community towards these scientific papers. As for the second reason, it is that all of this research was carried out through purely research institutions, that is, it was not completed or funded by medical or pharmaceutical companies, which are companies that may invest more in the second half of the confrontation phases.

Technical complexity

Most of these papers were concerned with areas of low technical complexity (forecasting, monitoring and detection), while the number of papers related to areas of high technical complexity (therapeutics and vaccines) was small. The late stages of the innovation life cycle (for technological development and industrial application) appeared to have less momentum and activity than those in the scientific research stage, in an indication of the weak interconnectedness of the system elements during the different stages of the innovation life cycle and the difficulty of transferring the knowledge acquired through the initial research activities. Products subject to industrial application.

Development of regulatory frameworks

The report has monitored a remarkable activity in the development of the regulatory frameworks related to vital research, and this rapid adaptation of the bodies responsible for managing this crisis, however, these regulatory frameworks need continuous and dynamic development to push the national research, development and innovation system to achieve the desired effect. With regard to spending, the report indicated that many research institutions and national universities have allocated financial resources to their employees, who are scientists and researchers, so that they can explore and develop innovative solutions to help the Kingdom overcome the pandemic.
