Ministry of Education and Higher Education Sunday held a seminar in Al-Quds Open University to address “Horizon 2020,” a European Union sponsored program aiming at boosting scientific research and innovation.

The seminar was attended by professors from al-Quds Open University.

Assistant undersecretary for higher education affairs in the Ministry of Higher Education, Fahoum Shalabi, provided a detailed presentation on the seven-year program and its components, saying its budget exceeds €70 billion and will last from 2014 to 2020.

Shalabi, who also serves as the project coordinator, analyzed the 153 research calls which have been published recently and comprise more than 500 research subjects in different areas of knowledge, such as medicine, energy, food, agriculture, transportation and others.

He said similar seminars were held in many universities in Palestine to allow greater access to the program by researchers. He added that specialty-based workshops were further held to provide more detailed elaboration to the specialized Palestinian researchers regarding the research subjects in order to promote and encourage their participation.

Shalabi provided a presentation on the strategies of the medium-term educational sector, their goals and the challenges they face, in addition to the policies and the executive programs to overcome these challenges.
