EU and Orange Jordan to create Innovation Space project in Jordan

Aug 04,2020 - Last updated at Aug 04,2020

The European Union (EU) and Orange Jordan signed a 7.3 million euro agreement to create a new Innovation Space project that would promote private sector-led innovation and digital economy in Jordan.

The EU-funded Innovation Space is a pioneering initiative in Jordan and a one-stop-shop for digital innovation and entrepreneurial support. It will introduce digital culture to the wider Jordanian public, foster digital skills, especially among women and youth, and promote and nurture entrepreneurship by identifying key opportunities for digital economic growth.

The Innovation Space is co-funded by the European Union’s “Innovation for Enterprise Growth and Jobs” programme, also known as Innovate Jordan.

The Innovation Space will utilise and expand existing digital centres affiliated with Orange Jordan, to catalyse investments to ensure that Jordan’s nascent digital economy and innovation culture mature.
