Two major areas of involvement have been identified for the Centre: boosting STI policies within ISESCO’s remit, and reinforcing R&D through transfer of skills, knowledge and technology, the ultimate aim is being to create leverage for further progress, enhanced market competitiveness and greater job opportunities for the youth.
1. Promoting knowledge transfer-based Research & Development for greater youth employability.
2. Supporting STI research strategies.
In fact the two projects are targeting the youth as a « digital generation » who grow in a digital environment that pushes them to the heart of the knowledge community. As such, the youth may become a great resource for Member States of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation as they may help speed up and improve their progress. In this regard, ISESCO Member States should strive, through mastering modern technologies, to optimally benefit from their younger generations to achieve sustainable development and address the burning issues of joblessness among the youth who seek empowerment and good living-conditions.
With the aim of speeding up the pace of socioeconomic development for Member States, the Center works to boost the young peoples’ skills and upgrade their capacities to make them very active elements in the process of change within the societies. Likewise, interaction between scientific circles and the industrial sector may boost the youth’s chances to integrate the labor market.
