The Knowledge Economy and Society view has evolved over the last twenty years into the major theory, policy and practice framework concerning the social, economic and political dimensions of country development dynamics. Substantial progress in academic research as well as practice-focused projects has revealed the power and effectiveness of applying Knowledge Economy and Society thinking and concepts in interventions concerning human and intellectual capital development, cultural and societal as well as organizational transformation, and environmental remediation and protection.

PAAET, as one of the biggest academic sector in Kuwait, is organizing Heading Global 2016 to enhance the research areas in the field of Knowledge Economy, and strengthen the connection between the industry and the academia. We believe that Education and Training is the core generator for qualified and skilled human resources in several fields that help nation’s development.

Heading Global vision is delivering a dynamic event contributing effectively in the scientific society and industrial fields. Heading Global leads towards Kuwait growth and propose ideas for sustainable development. The conference should help decision makers to understand the “know-how” to achieving their strategic goals. Heading Global mission is to harness the solutions and discuss the challenges and opportunities in Knowledge Economy Society for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
