How can open educational resources improve the quality of teaching and learning? How can we efficiently build digital research skills? What are the new opportunities for collaboration in research or education on national or regional levels? Developments in tools, platforms and services that facilitate e-learning (content and skills) that enable students, researchers and teachers to make the most of the online environment – these are the areas that are of interest to educators, students, learning technologists and researchers.

In recent years, Open Science’ and ‘Open Science Cloud’ have become familiar words, but what do they mean in practice? The first international framework on Open Science - UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science - was adopted by 193 countries in November 2021. An expert panel will investigate these topics, focusing on their impact in academia, industry and policy making and what potential opportunities they bring for research and education for National Research and Education networks (NRENs) in Azerbaijan and intern ationally.

Cybersecurity and cyberforensics are very dynamic areas of research with a wide spectrum of applications. Due to the changes of how we live and work these subjects have acquired the everlasting importance. Using digital tools and skills account for operational advances within these areas in the world of research and education and these developments are of great interest from a national and international perspective.

In science, education and research technology allows us (among many other things) to collect, store and process huge amounts of data – which is critically important for advancing science, enabling collaboration and research and engaging students in the scientific exploration of the world. Managing “Big Data” and “High Performance Computing (HPC)” have become an integral part of scientific developments, conducting research as well as the subject of study in their own right.

The conference dinner will take place at the Shirvanshah Museum Restaurant, one of Baku's most elegant and authentic restaurants, located in the more than 200-year-old palace of the Shirvanshahs. The restaurant is well known for its warm atmosphere, rich menu and unique local flavours. Transportation from the Marriott Hotel to the restaurant (and back) will be available to all conference participants. Participants are required to take their badge for proof of attendance to the conference.
National research and education networks consist of diverse organisations – each with its own culture, financial models and target audiences. Each national research and education network is different. There is one thing in common that invariably NRENs’ customers (present and future) will hold us to a high standard, and NRENs need to have ability and capacity to meet these evolving demands while responding to the challenges and changes in the wider societal landscape. The session will bring together Chief Executive Officers, Directors, leading representatives of the AzScienceNet (Azerbaijan), National Research and Education Networks of ULAKBIM (Turkey), CYNET (Cyprus), PSNC (Poland), RENAM (Moldova), DeiC (Denmark) to share their experiences and views on successful strategies to maintain resilience and sustainability of education, research and scientific communities in each respective national network. The exchange that is useful and beneficial in identifying solutions through fostering collaboration and joint thinking.

A system of machines and computing devices that transfer data over a network without human interaction; the gathering, storage and analysis of enormous amounts of data that can provide greater statistical power; machines that can learn and simulate or exceed human cognitive functioning: how can innovative ICT approaches such as ‘Internet of Things’, ‘Big Data’ and ‘Artificial Intelligence’ benefit from, as well as boost, scientific research in Azerbaijan and other National Research and Education Networks? What are the risks, potential rewards, lessons learnt? Join this session to find some answers and pose further questions. See session video
Modern civilisation affects our planet’s physical, chemical and biological systems, in return these systems affect us. Our ability to observe the Earth and better forecast weather, prepare for natural disasters, adapt to changing climate and manage natural resources has become increasingly sophisticated. In this session we will meet researchers in the field of seismology, earthquake detection and “Green Earth” to discover the trends and developments that have national and global significance.

From ancient times to the present day, good health is recognised as “the greatest of human blessings”. Using technology to support health care, medical research, remote diagnosis, patient data management and other related developments has become a growing field of increasing importance. In this session, the speakers will share examples of the use of technology that supports the development of a wide range of aspects that constitute the field of eHealth. These developments presents opportunities for collaboration in this field at national and international levels. See session video

How can technology enhance and support digital arts, humanities and cultural heritage sectors? How can new digital applications, techniques, tools and workflows open up new paths to collaboration and cultural exchange? And what role could the digital humanities (internet sociology, social network analytics, social anthropology etc.) play in situations where people have to withdraw from normal work and social contacts and rely more on online tools and spaces - for example in scenarios such as the social distancing measures required during the current COVID-19 pandemic? This session will present some thought-provoking insights. A system of machines and computing devices that transfer data over a network without human interaction; the gathering, storage and analysis of enormous amounts of data that can provide greater statistical power; intellectual machines that can learn and simulate or exceed human cognitive functioning: how could innovative ICT approaches such as ‘Internet of Things’, ‘Big Data’, ‘Machine Learning’ and ‘Artificial Intelligence’ boost research in Azerbaijan and other Eastern Partnership countries? What are the risks and potential rewards? See session video
