Muscat, Oman – WEBWIRE

MENA Innovation ( ), held under the Patronage of HH Sayyed Shihab Bin Tareq Al Said, Advisor to HM Sultan of Oman and Chair of the Research Center TRC, hosted by the Omani Ministry of Higher Education and organized by Brains Global, has finalized its Content of Programs, to be held from the 15th to 17th of September in Muscat, Oman.
The Forum, drawing together over 15 regional Ministers from Education, Higher Education and ICT from Oman and across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and leaders in industry from around the world, will showcase both public and private sector best practices in collaboration so as to ’future proof’ and forge tangible solutions today to the challenges tomorrow inherent within a rapidly digitizing education infrastructure. 
Following a keynote address from HE Dr Rawya Saud Albusaidi, Oman Minister of Higher Education, during the opening ceremony on the 16th of September, panels over the course of MENA Innovation 2019 will foster debate and dialogue on the critical issues pertaining to how best to empower and equip youth from across the region with both the skills and technologies necessary to flourish and spur future creativity within what has been deemed the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). 
In addition to the MENA Innovation-branded venue format of hosting pre-scheduled meetings between government, civil society officials and industry leaders, panels within the Forum’s Agenda include discussions on driving innovation in higher education and scientific research, investing in technological education and digital skills for regional entrepreneurship, ICTs for delivering the Fourth Industrial Revolution in MENA, the importance of active learning in MENA schools, advancing greater inclusivity and diversity in education and transformation through critical thinking in education and scientific research.
The MENA Innovation Steering Committee further divulged exciting additions to its agenda, including the hosting of a creative and energetic ’Young Innovators Special Session’. ICT innovation-driven technologies presentations from five Omani young innovators and five MENA-regional young innovators will be a key component of the final day of the event; an opportunity to showcase the brightest and best MENA has to offer, and, in step with the tradition of Brains Global, presented to the absolutely most appropriate stakeholders within government and industry, on-site and in-person.
The government of Oman has ultimately committed to enhancing cooperation with the private sector to achieve the ambitious goals laid before the Sultanate in realizing its ’Oman Vision 2040’. In addition to seeking to implement a unified national strategy to unlock the immense potential of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to drive the nation’s long-term economic development, MENA Innovation 2019 will concurrently bolster this mission and indeed its own tradition of autonomous showcasing of regional and geo-commercial benchmarks in ICT. The organizers will play their continued role, this time alongside Omani governance, in ensuring contemporary education fosters a more conducive climate for entrepreneurship and job creation, building a foundation of sustainable economic growth capable of contributing to GDP development.
Brains Global Founder and CEO, John Glassey, stated that, "It is, as always, a privilege collaborating in productive working sessions with my colleagues in governance forming the MENA Innovation 2019 steering committee here in Oman.
The changing nature of industry driven by perpetual transformation is having a massive impact on both the Omani and MENA regional job markets. Conversely, we live in a world where fresh economic growth is driven by small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs; therefore, empowering the potential of youth and youth culture is necessary to ensure a vibrant and stable economic future. We’ve charted an Agenda here to host a truly exceptional event in September, one which will, by design, map out a direct correlation within the Sultanate and greater MENA region’s pathway to economic prosperity through meaningful public-private partnerships (PPP), collaborations embracing the latest in ICT innovation to fuel the ambitions of our next generation" Glassey concluded.
