This edition is implemented by ICESCO in partnership with the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Azerbaijani National Commission for Education, Science and Culture, the “MOST” Business Incubator, and the “New Space Innovation” foundation. The first edition was launched last week in the Republic of Azerbaijan.

He noted the great success of the first edition of the program in Baku, Azerbaijan, during the past week.

    For his part, Mr.  Alim Khamitov, CEO of the “MOST” Business Incubator, stressed the importance of ICESCO’s training program in creating a work environment that encourages the youth of the Islamic World to be creative and innovative, hone their talents and enhance their ambitions.
