ABOUT INCEDI 2017

INCEDI 2017 will provide the platform to examine the relationship among governments, universities and communities of various interests. In the context of pressure on higher education institutions for more relevance to economic and social needs, collaboration among such partners is one of the ways through which universities can support regional and national economies. INCEDI will explore the nature of these partnerships, the factors that facilitate or inhibit stronger partnerships, as well as the potential opportunities for future partnerships. There is the need to create interfaces to bridge the gap between the business and academic sectors whilst at the same time emphasizing the central role governments could play in this process, acting as a facilitator and provider of funding and incentives to develop and encourage such partnerships.

It will also create a platform for academics, researchers, industry and education experts as well as doctoral candidates to share their research findings, experiences, and projects in a multi-cultural atmosphere. The conference will provide a friendly and nurturing environment where participants can share their research experiences with colleagues, interact with accomplished professionals in the field and create a networking opportunity for long term professional and business relationships.

All accepted papers would be published in the conference proceedings as well as in Journal of Education, Development and Innovation (JEDI) after peer-review.

A fee-free pre-conference workshop for faculty, doctoral and post-graduate students will be organized a day before the conference.
