LES - AC Participates in Training Workshop at Universidad De Castilla - La Mancha (UCLM) in Spain

ALBACETE, Spain - The Licensing Executives Society – Arab Countries (LES - AC), chaired by HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, participated in a two-day training workshop at Spain's Universidad De Castilla - La Mancha (UCLM) under the BITTCOIN-JO project.


The Society’s participation comes as a part of its role in the implementation of the BITTCOIN-JO project; funded by Erasmus+ Program and supported by the European Union.


With the aim to establish Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) at higher education institutions in Jordan, the BITTCOIN-JO project is implemented by the Yarmouk University in collaboration with twelve academic and industrial partners from Jordan and Europe.


Accordingly, the workshop strived for delivering the needed knowledge to the Jordanian partners; to assist them in the establishment of TTOs at their institutions; as well as, form a network between European and Jordanian partners that would transfer research knowledge and foster entrepreneurship.


During the two-day workshop various training sessions were provided on the creation of spin offs, external practices in companies, measures for the protection of Intellectual Property, Enterprise Europe Network and aspects related to innovation, in addition to others.


Majd Khaddash, Manager of the Licensing Executive Society, said, “Our partnership in the" Bitcoin-Go project "comes within the mission of realizing the association's investment in human capabilities to create a group of qualified Arab experts in the field of licenses and technology transfer.


Khaddash added that the association's goals in assisting in the economic development of the Arab world by encouraging, facilitating and enforcing intellectual property licenses, and investment in research and development largely converge with the project’s goals in supporting university students and academic staff to convert their creative ideas and scientific research results into knowledge products that can be marketed and used.


Moreover, the workshop included multiple visits to startups, companies and institutions in the region such as Arentio Teknowation and the Spin-Offs of UCLM: Venadogen and Print3D Solutions.
