    The U.S. Mission in Iraq Announces the 2021-2023 Fulbright Foreign Student ProgramThe United States Embassy is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2021-2023 Fulbright Foreign Student Program. This prestigious and competitive scholarship program provides outstanding students and professionals with the opportunity to obtain Master’s degrees at U.S. universities. Launched in 1946 by the U.S. Congress and the late U.S. Senator William J. Fulbright, the Fulbright Program seeks to develop future leaders through educational exchange as well as promote international peace and understanding. The Fulbright scholarship will fund up to two years of study at the Master’s degree level at a U.S. university starting in the fall of 2021. All disciplines and academic fields of study are available under this program, with the exception of medicine and other clinical studies. To be eligible, applicants from Iraq must: a) possess a bachelor degree from an accredited higher-education institution, b) demonstrate a mastery of English, and c) have a minimum of two years of work experience. For more information regarding eligibility requirements and application procedures, prospective applicants can visit the U.S. Embassy website: https://iq.usembassy.gov/education-culture/exchange-programs/fulbright-foreign-student-program/ . Eligible Iraqis with an outstanding academic record may apply at https://apply.iie.org/ffsp2021. The U.S. Embassy welcomes applications from men and women from all parts of Iraq. The deadline for submitting applications is May 1, 2020. (Source: United States Embassy) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Kerlink, a French-based specialist in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced the success of a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) pilot program for reservoir monitoring in Uganda and Iraq, which incorporates Kerlink’s LoRaWAN gateway technology. The effectiveness of the sensor-to-cloud monitoring programs in remote locations is resulting in near-term expansion to eight additional installations in Africa and Asia, and officials see a multitude of potential applications for IoT-based wireless sensor networks going forward. The UNHCR, the UN’s refugee agency, is charged with providing water to millions of people worldwide, often with daunting logistics. The Ugandan Arua Field effort, where the pilot monitoring program was first implemented, provides daily water deliveries to as many as 470,000 refugees. The LoRaWAN-enabled sensors installed at reservoirs starting in January 2019 enabled managers to monitor water levels in real time, providing unprecedented visibility into usage and resource management. They also provided a reliable new source of coordinated payment information for some 630 rental tanker trucks that were hauling up to 6,387 cubic meters (about 1.5 million gallons) of water daily when the emergency response began in 2015. Data from the sensors designed by several companies travelled through an outdoor Kerlink Wirnet Station LoRaWAN gateway, which provided essential connectivity with cloud databases and applications. UNHCR managers integrated the data into a dashboard that provided new levels of visibility into operations of this global program. UNHCR Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Officer Ryan Schweitzer noted that the IoT made it both easy and cost-effective to roll out a static water-level monitoring system. The agency hopes to use it globally as a “basis-of-payment? system for water-trucking operations, which in Uganda are as high as $15 million per month. “The LoRaWAN IoT technology is mature, extremely cost effective and scalable. The static reservoir-monitoring technology works extremely well,” he said. Schweitzer added that the approach has broad potential for all sectors of humanitarian services, including monitoring of groundwater, water-supply systems, water quality, waste collection, and air quality. He described it as a “possible game-changer for monitoring in refugee settings,” noting that the ability to document delivery of safe, potable water to refugees at all times is a “holy grail”-type of technology for UNHCR water and hygiene efforts. Next steps include replication of the pilot systems at other locations in Uganda and Iraq, as well as Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Bangladesh. “This unique and vital use case underscores the humanitarian benefits that the IoT can support,” said Stéphane Dejean, Kerlink’s chief marketing officer. “Because the UNHCR sensor-to-gateway-to-platform system provides critical life support for large numbers of people, there’s a very high need for trustworthiness and reliability.” “At the same time, the projects’ remote location and minimal staffing also demanded a true carrier-grade solution with quick, easy integration and deployment, and secure and straightforward administration,” he said. “We’re gratified by our Wirnet Station’s performance under harsh conditions, and honored to work with UNHCR – their work reflects our values and commitments towards society and the environment, and we look forward to continuing to provide expertise on the next round of projects.” Since its introduction in 2014 as the first commercial LoRaWAN gateway, the Wirnet Station has been chosen for thousands of installations worldwide by public operators, cable operators, private businesses, and public authorities. It has set new standards for robust, reliable, high-performance operation; an upgraded successor, the Wirnet iStation, was introduced in 2019. (Source: Kerlink) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    By John Lee. Deceptive shipping practices are reportedly being used in an attempt to conceal cargoes of sanctioned Iranian fuel oil being shipped via the Iraqi port of Khor al-Zubair. Writing in Lloyds List, Michelle Wiese Bockmann gives details of a network of shell companies running ‘dark’ tankers to transport the sanctioned fuel. Click here to read the full article.

    By John Lee. Iraq has banned all public gatherings and barred entry to travellers from a number of countries affected by the coronavirus (covid19). Entry permits are being denied to foreigners arriving directly or indirectly from China, Iran, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Italy, and Singapore, until further notice. Despite the ban on public gatherings, protesters continue to demonstrate in Baghdad and elsewhere. (Sources: MOFA, Middle East Eye) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.
