STAND Up!: Download now the National Intellectual Property Rights Report in Lebanon in the textile sector!


STAND Up! aims at protecting eco-innovation within the clothing and textiles sector in the Mediterranean. Berytech, as the Lebanese partner of the ENI CBC Med funded STAND Up! project, launched a consultancy mission to develop a report on the state of play and the current Lebanese landscape regarding Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of eco-innovation in textile enterprises. After a fantastic journey, the final document is officially available.

The objective of this consultancy was to elaborate practical recommendations to develop an enabling environment to grow Intellectual Property (IP) innovations and technologies competitiveness in the textile sector, together with developing academic and industry spin offs in the sector. The final report, which has been developed by Dr. Dominique Saleme, focuses on the textile and clothing sector and on circular economy related innovations.

It includes due diligence, state of play, policy and ecosystem gap analysis, regulatory framework to consider on a regional scale, trends and emerging opportunities across the industry value chain and practical recommendations to foster an enabling environment to develop, protect and commercialize IP based innovations in the textile sector and grow this sector on a local and regional scale.

The report will be used in a comparative study of innovation system performance indicators and intellectual property rights system in the textile and clothing sector between concerned Southern and Northern Mediterranean partner countries of the STAND Up! project. Based on this benchmarking, an action plan will be put in place to enhance the role of intellectual property rights in the innovation ecosystem and the circular economy market in the textile and clothing sector.
