06 December 2012

A three – day mission to Jordan, between 25th and 27th of November, was conducted by SPI under the Framework of the “Support for International Cooperation on Innovation Policy” project of the European Commission. 

Directed by DG Enterprise and Industry, the project aims to support the European Commission in developing international cooperation in the field of innovation policy with selected countries. The objective of the mission is to spread good practice examples in EU innovation policy making and to explore opportunities for further cooperation with Jordan. 

To fulfill this objective, representatives from SPI and Inno Group visited key Jordanian organizations in the fields of clusters development and technology transfer, such as the Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI), the Higher Council of Science and Technology (HCST), Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology (MOICT), El Hassan Business Park (EHBP), and Jordan SMEs association. 

Fruitful discussions were achieved on approaches to strengthen co-operation in the field of innovation policy between the EU and Jordan.
