XII International research-to-practice conference

Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO

Family, school and community: thinking and acting for a child


Dear colleagues!
Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in our country and around the world, Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO decided to cancel the XII International research-to-practice Conference for 2020.

We know that the Kazakhstani expert community, our teachers, and foreign colleagues eagerly wait for the annual meeting to discuss current issues in education. However, organising a Conference, even in a virtual format poses great risks we would not be able to manage. Having analysed the risks, we concluded that the most responsible decision would be to cancel this year’s Conference.


This, however, does not mean that we will leave you without insightful content during and after the Conference days. We are currently working to bring you a series of podcasts with speakers that were scheduled to present at the Conference. Information about the podcasts will be available on our website later.


Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO wishes health to you and your loved ones.


We cannot wait to see you in person in 2021!
