The Conference of Rectors of the Middle East Region (CONFREMO) held its 14th General assembly on November 17, 2022, at La Sagesse University in Beirut.

Co-organized by the Agence Universitaire de la Francophoniethis meeting, which brought together about fifty participants, allowed fruitful exchanges between the leaders of the member establishments and a reflection on the projects undertaken by CONFREMO.

Many presidents from Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, and the United Arab Emirates, as well as mandated representatives from universities in Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Qatar, and Cyprus, visited Beirut on this occasion.

Several workshops took place during the first and second day, around the themes of the consequences of the revolution of artificial intelligence, of the production of knowledge in French, digital governance and leadership.

More specifically, the workshop on artificial intelligence was intended to follow up on the World Week of Scientific Francophonie, organized by the AUF last month, which brought together experts from around the world and launched a new network French-speaking international conference devoted to artificial intelligence, while the workshop on the production of knowledge in French made it possible to examine the process of anglicization of scientific production as a whole as well as at the level of universities in the Middle East , and discuss ways to strengthen the scientific Francophonie at the regional level.

CONFREMO members held their General Assembly behind closed doors and discussed the main issues and challenges of university governance in the region.

This meeting made it possible to take stock of the activities of CONFREMO 2021-2022 and to discuss the perspectives of the four thematic commissions and future projects, in addition to requests for new memberships.

Following the decision of the General Assembly, the next Conference of Rectors of the Middle East Region (CONFREMO) will be held at Qatar University, during the last quarter of 2023.
