"2015 was therefore a consolidation year that brought international recognition and credibility to the Global Platform for Syrian Students as an active player and a trusted partner in the field of higher education in emergencies", Mr. Jorge Sampaio.


"It was a once in a life time experience to meet and compete with business professional teams from all over the world sharing knowledge, experiences and exchanging contacts".
