9th IEA International Research Conference to be held in UAE

The 9th IEA International Research Conference will be hosted by the UAE Ministry of Education from the 22-24 June 2021. Pre-conference workshops will be held from the 20-21 June, 2021.

The biennial IEA International Research Conference provides an international forum for those working with IEA study findings and data to exchange ideas and information on critical educational research issues in a comparative and global context.

The UAE Ministry of Education, our hosts for the IEA IRC meeting, would like to welcome participants with this message:
" Since the laying of the first construction block of the Union of the Emirates, education has been the foundation on which to build a society capable of keeping pace with progress. The UAE has keenly created pioneering education institutions characterized by high-quality learning environments and access to modern technology that enable generations of students to complete their education. The Ministry of Education has been working hard to develop curriculum learning standards and national assessments to emulate best global practices and to promote a culture of creativity and innovation.

As an IEA member and participant in TIMSS and PIRLS, the UAE is proud to collaborate with and support IEA as hosts of the 9th International Research Conference." 

Further conference details will be available in late 2020. Please see our IRC pages for an overview of previous meetings.
