The KIX EAP Hub is pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts for the KIX EAP Education Policy and Innovation Conference (EPIC) to be held online in March 2023. EPIC 2023 will surface and disseminate innovative research and policy practices in the Europe, Asia, and Pacific region. The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization – Regional Center for Educational Innovation and Technology (SEAMEO INNOTECH), and the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education are partnering with the KIX EAP Hub to make EPIC 2023 a success.

EPIC 2023 will bring together government officials, researchers, practitioners, members of the donor community, civil society, and the private sector to share their research and knowledge on education policy and innovation with other countries in the EAP region. It will provide a unique opportunity for people in different countries working on similar thematic priorities to convene and exchange their diverse experiences and expertise on an education topic.

In 2021, over four days, the first EPIC engaged over 1,000 participants, 94 presenters, and 32 institutional partners. The conference highlighted recent data-driven research and best practices which directly addressed national and regional challenges in the Caucasus, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and beyond.

EPIC 2023 will build upon EPIC 2021’s success with a demand-driven programme that addresses key thematic priorities for the KIX EAP region. As such, we welcome submissions related to education policy studies or educational reform studies.

Prospective presenters are encouraged to submit a research abstract by 22 December 2022. Submissions are accepted in English, Russian, and Arabic.

Please see the call for abstract guidelines for more information. Any questions should be sent to: norrag.kix@graduateinstitute.ch.
