The Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO), lead beneficiary of IPMED held its first session of the working group on Tuesday 23rd November 2021 to review the regulatory environment for intellectual property and innovation in Jordan.
JEDCO is currently working with the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply and other stakeholders within this project to identify priorities for improving the legislative and legal environment in the field of intellectual property and innovation related to small and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups and entrepreneurs from youth and women in the participating countries, as this project is quite aligned with the national goals in which JEDCO contributes in improving and developing the business environment for SMEs and promotes the culture of entrepreneurship, and is considered one of the leading institutions in strengthening the business ecosystem in Jordan, and supporting small and medium-sized enterprises throughout their life cycle.
JEDCO has formed a working group that includes members from the government and private agencies responsible in the field of intellectual property, innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as representatives from the SMEs sector, to review intellectual property policies and laws to identify priorities and opportunities for developing laws related to intellectual property in the involved countries.
A series of recommendations will be submitted to public authorities and policy-makers to align national IPR policies with international best practices; thereby facilitating policy dialogue with relevant stakeholders to work on specific recommendations to that end.
As a result, Mediterranean MSMEs will become more competitive and able to engage in technology transfer, collaborative research and innovation activities at the local, national and transnational levels.
