eDoorways Corp. today announced that it has been scheduled to present at ISTEC’s (Ibero-American Science and Technology Education Center) 17th annual General Assembly, held the week of October 26 – 30, 2009, on the Campus of the University of New Mexico (UNM) in Albuquerque, NM — USA. The theme for this year’s General Assembly is, “Using Technology to enable Collaboration, and Collaboration to Advance Science and Technology.”
Gary Kimmons, Chairman & CEO of eDoorways Corporation, stated, “This is one of those rare opportunities. Where a growing company like eDoorways has the chance to get on the ‘big stage’ in front of groups like Sun Microsystems, Hewlett Packard, National Instruments, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Charles Darwin Research Station and the World Bank, all members of ISTEC, mainly because we’ve been recognized for the possibilities we bring to society through our innovative platform, doorways and learning solutions.”
Founded in 1990 as a spinoff of UNM, ISTEC is one of the largest non-profit consortia in the Americas focused on improving the quality of life through education. Utilizing the expertise and commitment of its 20,000 faculty and staff members, ISTEC delivers curricula on science, technology, engineering, math, R&D and entrepreneurship to 120 universities and 18 million online users throughout Latin America and other parts of the world.
“This year’s theme for the General Assembly, ‘Using Technology to Enable Collaboration and Collaboration to Advance Science and Technology’ speaks directly to eDoorways’ business,” said Kimmons. “We are utilizing the web to foster collaboration between people. Whether it is matching a buyer and seller or creating educational opportunities through ‘LEARN,’ the foundation of eDoorways is the collaboration of people to achieve common goals with mutually rewarding outcomes in ‘real-time.’”
Dr. Ramiro Jordan commented, “ISTEC is dedicated to the improvement of international collaborations in science and technology and the development of human capital, the cornerstone of which is education. We see eDoorways as a powerful way to utilize the Internet in pursuit of our objectives. eDoorways has a platform that uses social networking in two areas of great interest to ISTEC. The first use is for social entrepreneurs, those people who are going to lead social progress in the region. The second is for commercial entrepreneurs, those who are going to start and grow the businesses of the 21st century that will create the jobs and other opportunities needed.”
He added, “In the area of education, being that the ‘LEARN’ doorway is premised on an already proven technology, it is expected that eDoorways will aid tremendously in our delivery of educational tools and courses to our users.”
Those close to the company believe ISTEC is key for the advancement of education and development of generational wealth in the Americas and Iberia, providing eDoorways with great opportunity, especially where it concerns its second developing doorway, “LEARN.” With an opportunity to grace the world stage, eDoorways anticipates even greater visibility for its “real-time” web 3.0 platform and “SOLVE” doorway.
