Iraq Education Summit

Following on from our successful UK HE events in northern Iraq, Levant Education is working in partnership with CWI Summits and Iraq Prosperity, to assist the Iraqi government in rebuilding education capacity and education levels, and to bring new opportunities for UK universities working in Iraq.

We are pleased to announce that the Iraq Education and Technology Summit will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dubai, UAE, 23-24 February 2013. The summit is supported by the Iraq Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and the Iraq delegation will be led by HE Ali Al-Adeeb, Iraq Minister of Higher Education & Scientific Research. Also present will be Deputy Ministers and Directors of the Scholarship Deppartments.

A central pillar of Iraqi Government strategy under the new Infrastructure Law is to form and strengthen relationships with leading international partners who can bring the highest level of education, technology, training and management skills to the country.

Iraq Prosperity

According to Iraq’s 2010-2014 National Development Plan, Iraq must mobilize $186 billion in investment – around $8 billion for education – create 3.5 million new jobs, and cut unemployment by half from 15 percent. Priority sectors include, among others, the education sector. Non-oil sector growth will be dependent on the reconstruction and development of decrepit infrastructure throughout the country. Scholarships for post-graduate education alone number 10,000 students per year.

The Iraqi official delegation will attend with an aim of meeting universities and companies who can offer practical and technological solutions to improve education capacity, education levels, education technology and innovation. Ths summit is highly recommended for UK Vice Chancellors, Heads of International Offices, Heads of University Development, and senior members of university International Offices.

Levant Education Group has secured a group rate for this unique event, as well as a UK focussed workshop with the Ministry, and priority 1-1 meetings. The full 2 day delegate pass, with refreshments, networking lunches,  the Iraq-UK workshop and priority meetings, is 1950 if booked before December 19th 2012. A second delagate from the same institution pays 1000.
