Entrepreneurship for Scientists and Engineers in Lebanon
September 2011, Lebanon

After positive feedback from the IOP’s entrepreneurship workshop in Jordan in March, the Institute was invited to organise a similar event in Lebanon. This took place on 12–14 September, hosted by Berytech Technological Pole, Beirut.

The invitation came from the UN’s Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia Technology Centre, which was the driving force behind holding such an event in Lebanon and which sponsored the event in co-operation with the country’s National Council for Scientific Research and the Lebanese Industrial Research Achievements programme.

The IOP’s international relations manager, Dipali Bhatt-Chauhan, said: “The workshop was a great success and it provided key decision makers from the government, industry and universities with a neutral platform to network and identify local challenges and barriers. A number of agreed recommendations and action plans will be taken forward.”
