WISE, an initiative of Qatar Foundation, is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative thinking, debate and purposeful action. WISE has established itself as a global reference in new approaches to education. Through both the annual Summit and a range of ongoing programs, WISE is promoting innovation and building the future of education through collaboration.

The annual Programs include the WISE Awards, the WISE Prize for Education, the WISE Learners’ Voice, WISE ed.hub, WISE ed.review, the WISE Accelerator and the WISE publications.

The WISE Summit, hosted in Doha, Qatar, is the milestone of the Initiative where the future of education is passionately debated by 1,500 attendees including opinion and political leaders, NGO and business representatives, decision makers, teachers and practitioners from around the world.

EdTechXGlobal connects the global EdTech community though an insight, investment and annual thought leadership event series, EdTechXEurope in London and EdTechXAsia in Singapore. The EdTechXGlobal summits bring together executive level investors, innovators, and industry influencers from worldwide education technology companies. Through extensive networking opportunities, the conferences in London and Singapore also aim to connect leading foundations, higher-education institutions, policy makers, and thought leaders from the industry as well.

Now in its fourth year, EdTechXEurope 2016 is scheduled to take place at Kings Place in London, UK on 15-16 June, hosting 800+ global attendees and over 150 global speakers, in partnership with leading education events SXSWedu and WISE. The inaugural EdTechXAsia conference will invite 1200+ global thought leaders from the Asia region and the international EdTech industry for a two-day summit and expo event.
