The Eurasian Investment Platform participated in the organization of the Eurasian Forum of Higher Education Leaders, providing high-quality technical equipment and information support services for the EHELF 2019 Forum.
The VIII Annual Eurasian Forum of Higher Education Leaders was held at the Nazarbayev University (Nur-Sultan, Republic of Kazakhstan) on June 6-7, 2019. This year, a series of interesting sessions were held related to the main theme of the forum – “Graduates Ready for the Future”.
The forum discussed the ability of higher education institutions to prepare students for the changing nature of the labor market, as well as the opportunity to develop the potential of future leaders and responsible citizens. Today, educational institutions face the challenge of maximizing the value they bring to students, which, among other things, implies the internationalization of educational experience, the provision of opportunities to participate in research, lifelong learning, as well as reliable partnerships with leading representatives of industry and business.
Leaders of educational, business and government organizations, academics and employers shared their experiences, and also participated in discussions, exchanging and generating innovative ideas about how institutions can cope with new challenges.
Students of Nazarbayev University, joining the forum speakers, delivered a speech on the fitness of young professionals to a changing world. The conference-discussion was the final part of the forum where the President of the Nazarbayev University, Mr. Shigeo Katsu, and other speakers discussed the future activities of the scientific community and summed up the results of this forum.
