The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) was established by Qatar Foundation in 2009 under the patronage of its Chairperson, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. WISE is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative thinking, debate and purposeful action in order to build the future of education through innovation. WISE is now an ongoing initiative and a global reference in new approaches to education. Through both the annual Summit and a range of continuing programs WISE is promoting collaboration and building the future of education.
The Summit offers a unique opportunity for all the participants to find out more about the most cutting-edge practices in education, network with high-level people from all sectors and from all countries, and to actively participate in building the future of education.
The annual three-day event in Doha, Qatar, is the leading international forum for innovation in education, bringing together over 1,000 practitioners, decision makers and thought leaders from multiple sectors and more than 100 countries. Each year, the WISE Summit explores current educational challenges and highlights innovative solutions with the aim of turning ideas into action and replicating proven good practices. The fifth annual Summit will convene in October 29-31, 2013 in Doha, Qatar.
