Secretary General of Kuwait Electronic Prize Manar Al-Hashash said on Sunday the Kuwaiti electronic projects vying for the The World Summit Award (WSA) for 2009 have impressed members of the arbitration panel. The ten-day WSA is being hosted by India, Al-Hashash said in statements to KUNA here. The eight Kuwaiti projects that ranked first in the eight categories of the recent Kuwaiti Electronic Award, are competing among the nominations of 157 countries in the current international contest, she pointed out.

Al-Hashash, member of the 34-member arbitration panel of the international contest, said the panel was assessing the Kuwaiti projects which have had a profound impression on the panel. The panel voiced admiration of the progress made by Kuwait in the field of information and telecommunication technology and the enrichment of the informatics content, she went on to say. The results of Kuwait Electronic Prize, organized by Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) under auspices of His Highness the Kuwaiti Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, have been announced on February 16.

The eight winning projects are “Kuwait e-government guidelines,” “library of waqf e-sciences,” “dyslexia treatment e-health program,” “moquette system for e-learning,” “Kuwaiti encyclopedia on e-heritage,” “Almowazi website on e-commerce,” KoutBu6. site for e-entertainment,” and “communication system for physically impaired persons,” she added.

The World Summit Award (WSA) is the global initiative to select and promote the world’s best e-Content and innovative ICT applications. It was launched in 2003 in the framework of the United Nations’ World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) as a contribution of the Austrian Government to the global effort to bridge the digital divide and close the content gap. WSA activities include national contests and selections of best practice, a global contest held biannually and content-focused national and international conferences along with exhibitions such as the WSA Road Show.
