GIMED: Register now for the webinar on Intellectual Property Rights as Vector for green innovation in the Mediterranean!


Following the development of two National Intellectual Property Rights reports in Lebanon in the green sector and in the textile and fashion, in the context of the GIMED and STAND Up! projects respectively, funded by EU under the ENI CBC Med Programme, Berytech with the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) are organizing an online webinar to showcase the key findings of these 2 reports to highlight the importance of developing the circular economy in Lebanon and in the Mediterranean.

The reports will serve as practical guidebook that will guide innovators and stakeholders in the green sector on how to develop, protect and commercialize Green Intellectual Property innovations and fashion/textile innovations in the Mediterranean. Among the main highlights of the webinar, you can find the following items:

  • Importance of green innovation in developing a circular economy
  • Key recommendations to protect and commercialize IP innovations
  • Start-ups, initiatives, spin-off projects in the green and fashion/textile sectors
