The concept of professorial chairs is based upon the
partnership between the Sharjah International Foundation for History of Arab
and Muslim Sciences and individuals or entities outside SIFHAMS for the
funding, support and development of an area of research related to the history
of Arab and Muslim sciences. Such individuals or entities provide the necessary
funding once the Foundation establishes the professorial chair, which supports
distinguished scholars and researchers who possess a high volume of quality
research related to the history of Arab and Muslim sciences.
The Foundation endeavors to establish and activate
professorial chairs in various fields serving the scientific heritage of Arabs
and Muslims at distinguished universities as a bridge in identifying the
contributions to Islamic civilization in the service of humankind.
