LES - AC Participates in the Consortium Meeting of BITTCOIN-JO Project and Dissemination Conference

DEAD SEA - the Licensing Executives Society-Arab Countries (LES-AC), chaired by HE Dr. Talal Abu Ghazaleh, took part in a consortium management meeting at Hilton Dead Sea under the BITTCOIN-JO project.

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

The BITTCOIN-JO project aims at establishing Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) at higher education institutions in Jordan and is implemented by the Yarmouk University in collaboration with 12 academic and industrial partners from Jordan and Europe. The Offices aim to support university students and academic staff to transform their creative ideas and the results of their scientific research into marketable knowledge and usable products, by creating startups, patent registration, and protecting their Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs).

The two-day consortium management meeting discussed the progress of the project that was initiated in February 2019; as well as the quality report provided by the partners, in addition to the Jordanian model of the Technology Transfer Offices.

Ms. Majd Khaddash, LES - AC manager, expressed her pride in the participation of the Society in such a project, noting that she is in charge of managing and implementing training and capacity building for Jordanian partners to raise the level of knowledge on issues related to intellectual property.
