To accomplish education Initiative in Iraq, The Higher Committee of Education Development in Iraq is formed under the premiership of the Prime Minster Noori Al Malki and membership of the minster of Higher Education and Scientific Research, The Minister of Education, and number of Iraqi professors, in accordance with the order 359 issued on the 5th of November 2008 that includes the following terms:

  1. The development of the teaching staff by sending scholarships to accredited universities.
  2. Modernization of curricula and the introduction of modern teaching methods.
  3. Fostering and exchange of knowledge, mutual understanding and experience with International accredited universities.
  4. Create a scientific atmosphere to attract back the talented scientific migratory. The Higher Committee of Education Development in Iraq pursued its work to overcome obstacles faced and still facing scholarship grants.

The product of such efforts was to hold Baghdad Forum of Iraqi and International Universities under the supervision of the Prime Minister Noori Al Malki from 19th to 20th of January 2009 at Al Zwara Hole in Al Rasheed hotel. The forum was considered the first of its kind where 24 of the American and number of British universities participated.
