Ladies and gentlemen, innovation is a subject that concerns every individual. Innovation is not related to heredity, or a person is not born an inventor because his father was an inventor. No, in our opinion, innovation is an educational subject that students and young people should be educated and supported to become innovative individuals.

Therefore, we view this workshop from this perspective and such activities are very necessary for young people to be creative and innovate. Just as students can be creative and innovative in project learning, it is also essential for teachers to be creative and innovative in the classroom in order to encourage, support, and educate students that have the ability to be creative and to help them and give them opportunities and teach them to educate them to become creative people.

We would like to thank those who have worked with us, the World Creativity and Innovation Week. Mr. Zanyar Jabbar and Mr. Abdulsalam Madani who have worked a lot in this field. We have previously held a panel on this field for our teachers at Erbil Polytechnic University because we take this issue very seriously It is an important topic and we hope that you can benefit from this workshop today and become an introduction for students and teachers to work on this topic in the future. Thank you very much again for your attendance.”
