The motives behind the selection of the subject area and casestudies were addressed, and the aim, objectives, methodology, and development model were introduced. After displaying the activities and outcomes of the ODS in its brainstormingphase, a discussion took place, highlighting the achievements, challenges, weaknesses and future directions.<br />The paper focused on one aspect of the study; i.e. the capabilities of educationalprojects to catalyze the concept of KCs, while the experience showed two other aspects worthy of further investigation: the potential of Jeddah to become a KC, and the impact of multidisciplinary projects on the educationalsettings and process. Through analyzing the experience, the paper proposed a number of procedures and actions to support and enhance the performance of the ODS, and ensure continuity, integration and accumulation of effort.<br />Dr. Amro A.
