Aref Husseini  

Director, Alnayzak for scientific innovation

Aref F. Husseini is an electrical engineer and physicist and has worked in many industrial and educational fields as a developer and researcher during the last 12 years.

Aref founded the Al Nayzak organization for scientific innovation ( in Palestine in 2003 on his own initiative. He has built a successful organization that is recognized by the NGO community in Palestine and has entered into partnerships to serve over 20,000 children and youths. Ultimately, Al Nayzak education programs will contribute to economic growth in Palestine through building new industry and investment opportunity.

Aref is challenging traditional teaching methods in the Palestinian education system to produce more students who are critical thinkers and approach problem solving through research, analysis, and open-minded scientific thinking. Cultivating these bright young minds to contribute to intellectual discourse and scientific ingenuity will help to advance the role of scientists and inventors in Palestine.

Al Nayzak sponsors a scientific incubation program for young male and female inventors who possess an original idea, and pairs them with experts in their field to scale up their project into a prototype that can be patented for mass production. The Al Nayzak center is based in East Jerusalem, with activity centers located in Nablus, Ramallah and Gaza to serve Palestinian youth throughout the territories.

In 2008 he was chosen by the Synergos Foundation in the United States as one of 22 Arab social innovators. In 2010 he registered his third patent for a marketable product and established an industrial and trade private company called Pal-Invent Co. to support the non-profit activities implemented by the Al Nayzak organization for scientific innovation.
