The project also aims to create jobs for young people through self-employment and composition of medium and small companies with a national product and high quality input.
Targeted to the Omani nationals whether individually or collectively, students, researchers and IT enthusiasts are welcomed to register. Entries for the program will utilize open source technologies as a comprehensive service tool.
