| 11 Mar 2019

The Jordan Insurance Federation (JIF) has received 35 research papers from around the region, vying for the AqabaConf 2019 Research Award at the upcoming AqabaConf 2019.

E-insurance is the topic of the research papers. The JIF says that e-insurance has proven to be a very important topic worthy of research as it touches on the future of the industry. Entries closed on 1 March 2019.

The Research Evaluation Committee for the Award held its first meeting at JIF’s headquarters. The evaluation committee comprises former JIF chairman Mr Waseem W. Zurub, former JIF chairman/gig CEO Dr Ali Wazani, and former JIF board member/insurance consultant Mr Basem Haddadeen.

The committee received a copy of the research papers presented without the personal details of the writers for a more transparent evaluation process, and spent the meeting detailing the criteria to be used for the evaluation process.

The JIF and the General Arab Insurance Federation are collaborating in presenting the 7th Insurance Conference “AqabaConf 2019” in Aqaba Jordan on 15 April 2019 where more than 550 participants are expected to congregate from the insurance industry around the world.

AqabaConf 2019 will present the Research Award for the very first time as part of the JIF's drive to enhance the insurance sector and help maintain the technological edge it has established throughout the years. The Award marks 10 years since the inaugural Conference was held.

The first, second and third place Award winners will be announced during the opening ceremony of the AqabaConf2019 on 15 April 2019. The awards are:

  • 1st prize: $3,000
  • 2nd prize: $2,000
