Education Innovation Assistance Program

The Educational Innovation Support Programs have been set to develop innovative education in the public education sector and to enhance the research skills of students within the national innovation system. The program also aims to train teachers and supervisors along with the provision of well-equipped clubs to encourage and nurture innovation and innovative thinking in a transformational journey that would empower the standards of Omani educators and students across the region.
